Hooked on Sonics talks to Several Futures and Best Fern- Thurs 6-8pm!

Tune in Thursday for a jam packed episode of Hooked on Sonics (6-8pm)! Around 6:30pm, we'll be chatting with Best Fern (Alexia Avina + Nick Schofield of Saxsyndrum). Best Fern is part of Montreal's Oh Hi collective and will be playing May 12 at Casa del Popolo with Merganzer + Tess Roby, presented by POP Montreal.

Then, around 7pm, we'll hear from Jonny of Toronto's Several Futures, for a dose of sci-fi and post-punk experimentation, all-in-one!

"(Several Futures) keep things minimal, elemental and old-school, reminiscent of math-y '90s American indie rock and post-hardcore." - Carla Gillis, NOW Magazine

Perennial fixtures of Toronto's underground music scene, members of Several Futures have multi-tasked their music. Whether it's dance punk, shoegaze or experimental improv music- members have collaborated in various projects prior to their recent debut 10-track album titled Before You Forget, which was self recorded (in true DIY form) at the legendary Ratspace.

We will be talking to bassist/vocalist Jonny Dovercourt, who co-founded the long-running Wavelength Music Series. Wavelength consistently programs both prolific touring artists as well as new voices from Toronto's burgeoning underground scene. We will hear what's coming up with this series, including a taste of what will be happening at this summer's Camp Wavelength- a festival of camping and music that takes place on Toronto Island at Artscape Gibralter Point (August 19-21). The line-up has not been revealed yet, but last year's inaugural edition led to Camp Wavelength being named one of Toronto's best music festivals in 2015 by blogTO. This year's theme is "Head in the Clouds". Get dreamy, hazy, lazy - 'cause it's summer!

Catch Several Futures at Brasserie Beaubien (73 Beaubien E.) with Summering, Traces, & Colour Wheel this Saturday night- a Passovah presentation!

Hooked on Sonics, Thursdays at 6pm, is yer weekly dose of indie rock, post-punk, power pop, shoegaze, math rock, noise pop, post-hardcore and anything with loud geetars...with sometimes a little alt-country, post rock and hip hop tossed into the mix. DO IT.
