THE UNSEEN STRANGERS have ambitiously cultivated a musical identity shaped by good old-fashioned bluegrass, the limitless barrage of contemporary musical influences, and a relentlessly curious sense of humour. The Strangers draw from the beeps and buzzes of the modern world to create an imaginative, energetic brand of acoustic music that is unmistakably their own. The band has toured Eastern Canada three times, performing showcases at NXNE and OCFF to name a few, and is a favorite at festivals featuring genres spanning Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, and Electronic.
Don't miss The Unseen Strangers as they host Memphis Tuesdays in the Drake Lounge.

A rock concert with plenty of biographical interludes courtesy of trans-bombshell Hedwig, former East-German twink and lead singer of nonchalant indie band ‘The Angry Inch’. This production takes the audience through a tragic story of betrayal, emotional and physical sacrifice, and love.
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!
Toronto jazz trio Rubix continue their Friday evening series, bringing their brand of sultry jazz-funk-fusion originals, standards and creatively arranged classics to the Drake Lounge.
Swing by for dinner + a cocktail and get your weekend started off on the right foot.
BLEEDING RAINBOW started four years ago in Philadelphia as a two piece known then as Reading Rainbow. After completing two full length albums and a handful of singles, the group has expanded to include two additional members. This has allowed the band to evolve and gave them the freedom to explore the sonic extremes of their creativity. On their new LP, Yeah Right, the band has found a balance between the extremes of thrashy punk and psychedelic drone to create a new and inspiring sound.
Advance tickets available at Rotate This & Soundscapes, and online at Ticketfly.
