About this event

In an effort to mitigate the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required for entry. This policy will be added to the mandatory public health measures already in effect.

As of September 22, 2021, the province of Ontario will require attendees to supply government-issued proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (with Government of Canada approved vaccines, completed at least 14 days before gate time). Government issued photo ID matching details on vaccination or test result documentation must also be presented for validation purposes. If you were vaccinated outside of the province of Ontario or outside of Canada, please provide a digital PDF or printed copy of your government issued vaccination confirmation receipt for your Government of Canada approved vaccine. Electronic vaccine receipt can be obtained using a green Ontario health card through the province’s COVID-19 Vaccination portal at https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca.

Active screening, contact tracing, proper face masking and PPE, physical distancing from individuals outside of one’s household, and capacity limits all have important roles to play in enhancing the safety of our performance spaces, limiting viral spread, and improving health metrics in the wider community.

CROWN LANDS • THE BIG WAVE TOUR

“You can spend your entire life chasing hits, but then when you’re your truest self, people really come out to support you,” says Kevin Comeau of the powerhouse Canadian duo Crown Lands . “When you just let you be you and let your freak flag fly, all of a sudden you get the biggest fan response, the biggest press, people coming out of the woodwork saying ‘This is the kind of music I love!’ “

In the spring, Crown Lands—Comeau (guitar, bass and keys) and Cody Bowles (vocals and drums)—broke through with two songs that returned them to their prog-rock roots and pointed the way to a limitless future. “Context: Fearless Pt. 1” and “Right Way Back” premiered with Rolling Stone with “Right Way Back” named “Rockest Record of the Week” on BBC1, while CBC Music wrote that “Crown Lands' epic, sci-fi-laced ‘Context: Fearless Pt. 1’ is a mic-dropping display of virtuosity.” Most recently, Crown Lands received their first Juno Awards nominations, for Rock Album of the Year and Breakthrough Group of the Year, taking home the award for Breakthrough Group. The band also signed a deal with Spinefarm Records, which will be working with Universal Music Canada to support their upcoming releases in the U.S. and U.K.

Now the group returns with two new songs, “White Buffalo” and “The Oracle,” which extend their musicality and their ambition even further. “White Buffalo,” produced by three-time Grammy winner David Bottrill (Tool, Mastodon, Peter Gabriel), is the third installment in a series of songs addressing indigenous rights, following “Mountain” and “End of the Road.”

“The white buffalo is a symbol of prosperity and strength in indigenous cultures,” says Bowles (whose own heritage is half Mi’kmaw, an Indigenous tribe from Nova Scotia), “so the song is about reclamation and overcoming oppression. We wanted to make something that was our projection of the future we hope will manifest.”

“When we took a step back,” adds Comeau, “we saw that ‘Mountain’ was about what happened, and ‘End of the Road’ talked about what is happening, so we wanted to write about what will happen.”

Meantime, over the course of a 13-minute, multi-part composition, “The Oracle” continues another story that Crown Lands is creating, revealing the origins of the Queen character featured in the “Context: Fearless Pt. 1” music video. “We wanted to take the listener somewhere and evoke a sense of adventure,” says Bowles. “’Context: Fearless Pt. 1’ was our first experience writing different parts and different movements, and this is a further exploration of that format.”

Comeau points with pride to his playing on the track, both on guitar (“I think I’m really coming into my own as an arranger on the guitar”) and on keyboards. “I’ve actually always thought of myself as more of a keyboard player and bass player,” he says, “so it’s nice to add those elements, those dynamics, into the song. ‘The Oracle’ has some of our heaviest moments and some of our most serene, and I’m really excited to see how we can push that even further.”

Skye Wallace is what happens when a trained singer with folk roots discovers punk rock in their youth and creates the rock & roll show you've always wanted. Wallace’s new self-titled album embodies Canadiana. From living on BC’s west coast, to spending time at residencies from Norris Point, Newfoundland to Dawson City, Yukon, the Toronto-based artist has been inspired by every corner of the country. However, it’s not just geography that informs her sound – her lyrics are often based on Canadian history, sharing the struggles and stories of the past. But this doesn’t result in nostalgic sounding music – her lyrics may have roots in folk, but musically they branch out into so much more. From delicate ballads to grungy rock and roll, the new album is sometimes moving, sometimes frenetic, sometimes straight-up unrestrained. With a voice that effortlessly floats between sultry purrs to powerful yelps, and a band that takes you from somber lows to raucous highs, listening to Skye Wallace will take you on a journey that is not to be missed.
