    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!

    Embrace Presents:
    VERA BLUE

    Cutting her teeth as a folk artist in the small town of Forbes and adopted home of Sydney, Vera Blue found her feet first as a singer and then an acoustic guitarist. Now, she’s found her sound, mixing the music she’s long loved with lush, sultry electronica. The results are sometimes gentle, sometimes ferocious and always show-stopping, with her commanding vocals front and centre.
    It’s an evolution that feels like coming home. “I’ve always wanted to create something that’s a blend of folk and cool, heavy, thick sounds,” she says. “This is the music I have been wanting to make and I feel like I’m unleashing.”

    Phantasmagorical Sir Jerry returns to the Underground with his all-ages, all-amazing, APRIL FOOLS DAY BIG JOKE SHOW! Lots of jokes + lots of pranks.

    Sir Jerry’s been dubbed “Pink Floyd for kids,” and singled out by Pee-Wee Herman producer Richard Abramson as “the most innovative kid’s entertainer” since Pee-Wee himself. With dancing girls, colourful stage characters, rock ‘n’ roll and music hall influences – all informed by his Monty Pythonesque sensibility - the top-hatted faux-Brit Sir Jerry is a unique hybrid indeed.

    The perfect laugh-out-loud Saturday afternoon for young jokesters and old-school prankers a-like.

    ACID DAD
    Conceived at a drag show in Brooklyn in August 2014, Acid Dad has quickly become one of the most talked-about bands in the New York scene. Over the past year, their string of infectious psych-punk singles has earned them nods from the likes of Nylon, The Deli, CMJ, Village Voice, Impose, Hero Mag and more, and has garnered them slots on Gigawatts Festival and Color Me Bushwick. Dingus once described them as "so f***ing good," and if you listen to their latest single, "Grim," you'll see why. Between dropping awesome tracks like that one, Acid Dad has made a name for themselves as one of the tightest and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene. The band recently played 6 CMJ shows, including Austin Psych Fest's Levitation showcase at Rough Trade along with Drinks, Mild High Club and Shannon & the Clams. Look out for their debut EP in early 2016.


    Honduras
    Honduras played Brooklyn's DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums they added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to round out the band's signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed and interesting sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Blur, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. The first single from their upcoming debut LP, Paralyzed, is currently in regular rotation on Sirius Radio XMU and the band was just featured in NME's On The Radar section. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness. Their engaging stage presence is both apropos to their influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Their upcoming debut LP is called Rituals, and will be released in early 2016.

    DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.
