Night Owl Festival 2018 - Top Gun Picks!

The annual garage/psych extravaganza is back on in Toronto this coming weekend. The Night Owl Festival has brought in some amazing bands from all over the world such as King Khan & The Shrines, Night Beats, Michael Rault, Pearl Earl and the Allah-Las but also boasts some of the top local bands on the circuit. Here are the locals you won’t want to miss:

Brenda – A Deli favorite; Brenda brings a big fuzzy intensity along with a unique loud/quiet dynamic that makes you wanna bang your head and lock your doors simultaneously. Brenda will be playing Friday at The Horseshoe Tavern.

Peeling – A part of the Buzz Records team; Peeling blends pure noise rock with eerie grunge influences. Peeling plays Saturday at Lee’s Palace

Vypers – Heavy garage rock influenced by that California psych sound. These guys have really come into their own with the release of their latest EP “Champion 100”. “Mr.Girl” is a highlight where they add some nice melodies to their garage rock chaos. Vypers also play Saturday Night at Lee’s Palace

Luna Li – She is known as the garage rock princess of Toronto. Luna Li plays both guitar and violin which makes for a wild combo. She released a new single “Silver Into Rain” over the summer and will be playing the closing show for The Night Owl Festival on Sunday at the Rec Room.

All shows will also include tarot card readings, facepainting, colouring and so much more. Ticket and event information here. - Kris Gies

   

Vypers - EP Release Party @ The Baby G 03.09

Brand new single from garage/psych band Vypers. “Deepsave” begins at a slithering pace with heavy drums and exotic noises filling the air. The energy is a more subdued than other recent releases from these guys. The change of pace is nice though as it makes you wonder what might be around the corner. This tune is still proves to be complete chaos like you would expect from Vypers. They are having an EP Release Party on March 9th at The Baby G with a stacked undercard featuring Brenda and Jean Daddy. – Kris Gies

   

VYPERS - "MR.GIRL"

Toronto's garage scene is booming right now and right in the thick of it is Vypers. A wild 4 piece psych garage band that look as dirty as they sound. They just opened up for Black Lips at the Horseshoe but if you missed that don't worry. Listen to their new single "Mr.Girl" right now and get lost in the duel guitar threat comin' at ya. The fight between fuzz and reverb is a real battle with Vypers. It may never end. Vypers will be joining The Tenenbaums and Wine Lips on June 10th at Cherry Colas. - Kris Gies
