Often described as Canada’s answer to Snarky Puppy, Snaggle combines influences from jazz, rock, metal, classical and everything else they can get their hands on to create their own brash and infectious brand of hard funk. With influences ranging from Miles Davis to Rage Against the Machine, Snaggle features a repertoire of exciting, dynamic and entirely original material. This all-star line up of players, including the fastest drummer in the entire world, are among some of the best 20-somethings on the scene and represent the next generation of Canadian talent.
The band has been hard at work on their second studio album ‘The Long Slog’ which will be released on the Browntasauras record label On October 2nd 2016.

Fusing of old-world sounds and new-world flair, Greyson Gritt and Tiffany Ayalik are embracing their blended backgrounds. Combining their talents of throat singing, haunting melodies and traditional legends, Gritt and Ayalik are excited to present a circumpolar mix of flavours from across Canada and Greenland. As Ayalik charismatically embodies her stories, Gritt infuses it with a rock soul to create an experience that consumes the senses.
Rosina Kazi and Nicholas Murray, better known as the Toronto-based Electronic duo LAL, have deep roots within the Canadian music scene with 18 years of performing and an expansive catalogue of innovative records to their credit. Their latest album, Find Safety, is the result of three years of studio work, offering a compellingly danceable and provocative political statement all at once.
With influences encompassing Fela Kuti, Massive Attack, Pete Rock and Detroit Techno, Find Safety is lyrically informed by LAL’s community shows at their home concert space, as well as their ongoing support of social justice causes and art projects, with an emphasis on Queer and/or BIPOC issues. The album overall addresses a need to create safer spaces for themselves and their friends, and musically is a masterful blend of synth and sample-based minimalism. Or as they prefer to call it, 4 a.m. music.
Come celebrate love, art and community in the last art showing at the original HOMEGROWN location, featuring the work of over 30 local female artists. Enjoy the chillen vibes of DJ LP and a beer tasting by Collective Arts Brewery.
