I love Toronto. What a great city. One of my favorites in Canada. This show was very amazing, and more varied than most festivals. I think more festivals should be like this, not Industrial or Goth or Future POP, But ALTERNATIVE. Yes, I like when there are many styles of music to listen to, its how I am, i tend to like the cream of the crop of lots of Genres. I prefer referring to my wide musical taste as Alternative. Seriously. I want to thank Troy, Richard, Lisa, Kim, Ethan, Megan and everyone who made this possible. I got to reunite with Daniel and DeJon of Haujobb, we are talking about me playing Myer Fest in October and maybe a Haujobb VAC mini euro tour after. This is great news. I might be remixing 3teeth as well, would love to work with Mr Kitty, Would love to do a mix for the Dreaming. I got to meet the dreaming as well, they were very amazing people. I give them best in show at this festival. They BLEW ME AWAY. I loved the diversity of the bands the most, Go fight was fun as well.he guitarist from that band showed me how to curse with the Michael McDonald voice, and how that is the only way he would let his kids say curse words. Pure gold. I hope they continue this festival, i will come back in a couple of years with a much better hair cut. LOL..
*UPDATED*I also got a mini tour of part of the city from Marcho of Decoded Feedback, he took us to moog music store where i drooled all over the modular gear they had, plus saw the most synths in a shop at once ever, Hope we can play some gigs together in the future. We also hung out with Carlos and Torque Order from Austin TX. All such amazing nice sweet people. Yone is so awesome as well. Xris Smack too. So cool to sit and talk with them all. Juli Bozak was very nice to me as well. So many nice people up there. Kassi Cork tried to get me to take a silly picture, but i was like, all my pictures look silly and ran away.
The Dreaming: FUCKING AMAZING. Stabbing Westward with a new name. All live, everyone playing. Loud, powerful and everyone nailed it. they covered a garbage song as well.
Leather Strip: I saw them at WGT 2016, but this time it was old school, and man did it take me back, and man he gets great vox live. he gave me some tips WOW, thank you Clause.
3 Teeth: Holy shit, this is the new breed of what manson, nin, and ministry were. I like them more than any of the new comers in this industrial metal thing. FUCKING POWERFUL!!!!!!
Mr: Kitty: Reminded me of Petshop boys meets Crystal Castles.
Ego Likeness: Amazing as always. I loved it so much this time, seeing them on a bigger stage withe the big lights and video.
Bruderschaft: When I heard the female vocals, i was blown away. Then Daniel Myer came out and Nailed a sisters of mercy cover and it blew my fucking head off.
Ludovico: This band puts on the most amazing theatrical live show, rivals even skinny puppy. Very cool.
Squid Lid: Very weird. In a very new and refreshing way. Very good theatrics, make up, lights.
Haujobb: So amazing still, This was a reunion of sorts for us. We toured with them ages ago. they still have it. Passion. So much, live its very powerful.
Alter Der Ruin: This guy has soul. Sings his heart out. Very unique sound as well. Any band that makes a song about a mustache ride is king
Velvet Acid Christ: Steven and Rick make our show so much better. Donna even more so. Krztov Finally put some real make up on and wee he looked great. I wish i could afford them on every show. Steven and Donna have had the most profound effect on me in many ways. Steven’s mind is simply amazing and he has such amazing advice for me on many things that i will actually do.
