    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!

    Matthew Logan Vasquez is feeling optimistic. That’s not necessarily apparent the first time you spin his new full-length solo album.

    Each track on Matthew Logan Does What He Wants feels urgent and intense. Impatient landlords, financial woes and other frustrations fan the agitation embedded in the opening track, Same. Isolation darkens the brooding images of From Behind The Glass. Death takes a bow on The Fighter. Vasquez can’t help but juxtapose the celebration of Fatherhood with a lament that we ain’t got the money to pay the hospital. The music enhances this impression.

    Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, Froth first garnered attention with their debut LP, 'Patterns.' Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014.
