  • Precursor is a preliminary study into a new dimension of visual stimulation, and the focus of Analog Preservation Network's Drake Lab residency, which will run from August 11 to 25.

    APN has come together to construct an experimental multi-layered screen interface for live analog projections. This platform will become the space for visual experimentation and performance enhancement. Musicians, dancers and artists will be invited to the Drake Lab to collaborate in the production of performances that incorporate interactive lighting and visuals within the Portable Analog Laboratory.

    During their residency, APN will be constructing their modular screen interface. All are welcome to drop in during the day to view the construction process. Designated Designated drop in hours are 1pm-4pm during the weekdays. If you wish to meet directly to discuss ideas for collaboration we invite you to make an appointment with the APN team via email: analogpreservationnetwork@gmail.com.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

  • Los Angeles, CA—Harper Simon has announced plans to embark on a summer tour beginning in August, that will include a string of dates in major cities including San Diego, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Brooklyn, NY and Toronto, ON. The tour will continue to support Simon's critically acclaimed sophomore album DIVISION STREET which released in the US on March 13th to critical praise.

    DIVISION STREET was hailed by Rolling Stone as "pop-rock that stands on its own and then some" and People Magazine as "dreamy." The 10-track album set was produced by Simon and Tom Rothrock (Elliott Smith, Beck), and was recorded with a small coterie of guest musicians—including Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello's Attractions on drums, Nikolai Fraiture from the Strokes on bass, vocals by Inara George, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on synths, as well as Nate Walcott from Bright Eyes and Wilco's Mikael Jorgensen.
