Wildgraves!

$10! Experience three amazing live music acts!
Tickets available online (www.picatic.com/thepiston) and at the door.

DOORS AT 8

Victoria May @ 9pm
Alexa Dexa @ 930pm
Wildgraves @ 10pm

-------------------
Wildgraves | Synth-Pop Duo from Toronto
www.wildgraves.com

Wildgraves' vocalist Victoria Egan's pure and airy vocals entice you to know that 'there is strength in drifting'. Her powerful but delicate voice has been compared to both Florence Welch and Feist. The other half of the duet - both musically and in real life - is synthesized and live instrumentalist Mitchell South. Combining clear vocals with crunchy synths, Wildgraves intertwines two worlds to create something hypnotic. With a recent release of their Debut E.P "Near Drowning", they are a new Toronto act to watch out for.

-------------------
Alexa Dexa | Toychestral Electronic Pop from NYC
www.alexadexa.com

Alexa Dexa is a composer, sound designer, and performer with a collection of toy instruments to rival a playpen. Her toychestral electronic pop solo project cushions brutally soulful vocals in a labyrinthine electronic sound-world articulated by coy melodies on an 18-key Schoenhut toy piano and colorful pitched desk bells. An adventurer at heart, Alexa spends 4-6 months out of the year independently touring the world. Her self-booked tours have taken her throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Oceania, & Asia. 

"An example of pure charm and whimsy” - The New York Times
"Unarguably personifying DIY for the millennium" - Creative Loafing Atlanta
This show will be her Toronto debut!

-------------------
Victoria May | Indie Folk from Toronto
https://soundcloud.com/victoriamay

Victoria May is an indie folk singer-songwriter based in Toronto, ON. Her stripped back sound draws heavily from artists such as Simon and Garfunkel, Johnny Cash and The Lumineers. Harmonic, honest and virtuous original songs create a blend of classic and modern folk music. With captivatingly raw melodies and instrumentation, Victoria is making waves with a guitar, a voice and a story.
