    • This event has passed.

    December 9, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 1:00 am

    Returning to Guelph for the first time since lightning turned their Hillside set into a darkened horns and megaphone acoustic jam. It was a classic festival moment but The Human Rights are coming back to town to deliver a set of high energy modern roots reggae with proper sound and lights. Alongside Guelph hip-hop and art collective Identity Soup, join us for what promises to be a huge night in downtown Guelph! Doors at 9, bands at 10 and it’s all ages!
    Thursday December 1st
    ONYX, 12 Wyndham St N 2nd Floor, Guelph,
    $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
    All ages!
    When it comes to Reggae in Canada, few bands do it better—while remaining true to its founding principles—than Toronto’s The Human Rights. Since forming in 2007 around one of the scene’s true lions, Friendlyness (previously of Culture Shock, Truth And Rights and Big Sugar), The Human Rights have developed a modern, high energy sound that blends Roots Reggae with jazz, funk and R&B influences, courtesy of a blazing three-piece horn section and the soulful lead vocals of JUNO nominee Tréson.
    Based in Guelph, Ontario, Identity Soup is an art collective comprised of members who specialize in areas such as film, music, and all things creative. Their first EP, “Condensed” was released on August 12, 2022, and featured tracks that showcased the group’s versatility and artistic scope.
