Three avant electronic pop progenitors push the form with new energy for this Departures outing featuring Latvia’s Elizabete Balčus, along with locals New Chance and Chiquita Magic!
Kicking off our 2022-2023 season is a heavy night of avant pop re-invention featuring Latvia’s Elizabete Balčus, along with locals New Chance and Chiquita Magic in the heart of Riverdale Park at the intimate St. Matthew’s Clubhouse.
Performance artist, musician, engaging eccentric Elizabete Balčus manifests avant psych-pop compositions from haunting electro-acoustic soundscapes, looped flute phrases, siren-esque vocals and cosmic synth textures. Recently signed to Montreal’s Mothland label she lands in Toronto to join two of our own experimental pop masters, leftfield electronic composer, vocalist and storyteller New Chance, and Toronto-based Colombian producer, singer & synth wizard Chiquita Magic.
This concert is a part of the Departures series, curated by Tad Michalak.
