Saturday, June 23rd. 10pm @ The Brain – $PWYC
After you’ve seen all of the day time shows during Open To The Core – head on over to The Brain for a fine selection of pints and some live music.
Toronto’s SIANspheric are performing as a part of ‘Saturday Night Live’ at The Brain. SIANspheric have been making music since 1990 and have crated a very unique form of shimmery, hazy, space-rock like music. Their website describes the sound as: “a kind of cocoon music which suggests the insulated feeling of being pleasantly adrift in a Vicodin haze, looking bemusedly out at the cold, harsh world while feeling no pain..” How can you go wrong with that? You can’t.
Come down to The Brain this Saturday and get ready to step into the Cocoon.
