The celebration for Oh, Canada continues with a dance party featuring Brendan Canning, co-founder of the Toronto-based indie rock group Broken Social Scene. A stalwart on the city’s DJ circuit for more than a decade, Canning serves up an all-vinyl dance party late into the night that is sure to go down as a highlight of the summer. Check out Canning's website here.
Short sets from two bands featuring artists who have works on display in the galleries help us cover the breadth of Canada. Pastoralia from Nova Scotia features Oh Canada artist Mitch Wiebe on vocals while artist Rita McKeough makes up half of the duo Sleepy Panther from Calgary, Alberta.
