Catch this special evening with The Hermit featuring vocalists Paula Toledo and CR Avery, and sets from Sekoya and Big Gold Chain!

THE HERMIT shifts glaciers of sound and changes all definitions in the musical encyclopedia of what is expected of ambient electronics, dub, world and dance. They find innovative ways to bridge together landscapes of organic and electronic music in a powerful live show not to be missed!

SEKOYA - nominated for a JUNO Award, Sekoya's jazz-influenced broken beats, sophisticated electronic sounds, groundbreaking vocal stylings, socio-politically charged lyrics and intelligent arrangements defy genres while taking listeners along for the ride.

CR AVERY - this human beat box from East Van is a poet/musician/artist who sets his rhymes to his own beats. Avery awes with his talent of creating music with his mouth while reciting verse.

PAULA TOLEDO offers sublime, compelling melodies and lyrics fronted by a raw, powerful voice.
