Fallen Love : Pices Rising

fallen love.jpg

The masterminds at Fallen Love Records present…

There are cracks in the ice. Bulbs buried in the soil. The thaw is coming. Turn up the sunshine.

Laughed the Boy were one half of our 12th release, O Nostalgia!, back in the summer of 2015. They've since added some new members and return with a current of new songs to drift away on.

Baby Band are a brand new project from two former members of Camp Girls. Pack a sandwich, fix that side ponytail, and double-knot your laces. Camp is back in session.

Moodset & Guests

19+, $10/PWYC

Viet Ho

A self-described musical chameleon, Việt is a 21-year old singer-songwriter based in Toronto. He combines the lush harmonic and rhythmic techniques from his Humber jazz education, with the booty-shaking grooves of his first loves, neo-soul and disco, to create a unique sound transcending the decades. Lyrically, he draws upon his experiences as a queer youth of colour in the city, creating music that sparks a dialogue for issues of gender, sexuality, and cultural identity.

Viet will be making his solo debut at the Junction City Music Hall after amassing years of experience singing backgrounds with a wide variety of musical acts. As a vocalist for the Toronto All-Star Big Band, he has worked alongside artists such as Grammy award-winner Thelma Houston and Juno-award winner Murray McLauchlan. He has also sung with local groups and artists such as the Forte Men’s Choir, Pleasure Craft, Emily Rose, and several Humber showcase ensembles.

Watch out for the release of his first EP, Pleasure Slave, in the summer of 2019.

All About the Song Showcase

An evening of music and ideas by one of the internet’s premiere music podcasts, Toronto’s own, All About the Song.

FACEBOOK EVENT

Read the mission statement from All About the Song

This podcast was started to discuss the power of music and what it takes to write a song.  Songs are so important and in this day and age, artists have to focus on so many aspects of being a musician. I was starting to worry that the true focus of being a musician and songwriter was being lost.  I want to bring forward what it is that compels you to write a song.  

Doors at 8pm. BRING YOUR EARS!

St Paddy's Day Bone Crusher - Singles, Sarandons, ANDY

To mark the banishment of snakes and the excuse for dipsomania, JCMH is thrilled to bring home to roost:

Singles

The Junction City stalwart 90’s tribute band. From a time when you had to tape videos off Much Music so you could listen to your favourite songs, this band are less nostalgia trippers than expert players bringing these anthems of slack and circumstance into a modern context as eternal rock anthems.

Sarandons

It’s rare that a group can poke their heads out from under the tumbleweeds of the alt-country-roots-americana ponderosa with the pride and skill to get noticed, but this band are the whole enchilada with a side of rockamole. Come see what the whole Junction City office has been talking about!

ANDY

Alt Rock Tribute by Sonic Curators

Alt Rock. The movement that defined a moment. A moment that birthed a generation. Before smart phones and soundcloud rappers, flannel clad minstrels took the DIY hardcore and punk ethos of the politcally charged 80's and took the 90's to all eternity.

SONIC CURATORS brings together five musicians who have quickly evolved into great friends. With very similar musical tastes and interest, we hope to share our music with like-minded friends who can appreciate us balancing work, family and music.
