FET.NAT : fetnat.bandcamp.com
Hailing from the hotbed of Hull and Ottawa’s experimental scene, Fet.Nat are a force to be reckoned with. Blending eclectic musics into something truly unique, Fet.Nat defies categorization. Is it post-punk? Is it free jazz? Is it dance music? Is it art rock? All we know is that it rules. With every new release becoming an immediate staple around Kazoo! Headquarters, their explosive live show continues to be one of the best we have ever seen.
This Saxophone Kills Fascists : thissaxophonekillsfascists.bandcamp.com
This Saxophone Kills Fascists is the spiritual Free Jazz project of Arrington de Dionyso (also of Old Time Relijin). The project seeks new forms and directions for contemporary protest music. Abstraction in music as resistance. Not preaching to the converted, but here to offer prayer, strength and medicine for difficult times.
S.H.E.D. (Evan Gordon) : shedbaron.bandcamp.com
Guelph’s Evan Gordon is probably on a lot of records you own — and they’re all great. His new project, S.H.E.D., continues that tradition of Gordon pounding out great records while also branching out into new territory with cuts that are somehow night clubbing bangers while also personal bedroom jams all at once. This will be the (long-awaited) debut performance of S.H.E.D. and Kazoo! is thrilled to present this synth heavy trip.
DSTRCT is, unfortunately, not a physically accessible venue.
