“Waiting for Summer” is feeling like a solstice-bearing catharsis to look forward to during these frigid months. With the expectation of returning to full capacity by June, Wavelength is excited to be presenting Chicago’s Circuit Des Yeux and Toronto’s own Picastro at 918 Bathurst.
Chicago’s Circuit Des Yeux is a singular experimental-epic-pop weaver and brainchild of Haley Fohr. Her sixth album and debut for seminal indie label Matador Records, -io, was released in October 2021 to widespread critical acclaim (Pitchfork, Mojo, Uncut, Dusted, The Wire, The Quietus, Beats Per Minute). Expansive and emotional, the album is a sonic footprint of how grief becomes a landscape. Written for a 23-piece orchestra and created during the pandemic, Haley Fohr’s performance is bound to be arresting and poignantly transformative.
Starting the evening will be Toronto’s slowcore staples, Picastro. If you are not acquainted with the brilliance of Liz Hysen, then today is your lucky day. Started in 1998 as a solo project by Hysen, Picastro expands to include an ever-evolving array of collaborators, who have included Owen Pallett, Nick Storring, and Brandon Valdivia (aka Mas Aya). Picastro’s latest release, I’ve never met a stranger, is an EP of touching covers, created by friends; cultivated by the uncertainty of life during a pandemic and harnessing the magic of not knowing.
Your safety is our primary concern. Live event protocols are likely to change month to month. At this time, audience members aged two and older are required to always wear face coverings while on the venue property, except when actively eating and drinking. Proof of full vaccination minimum 2 weeks prior to the event is required to enter.
918 Bathurst is not currently wheelchair accessible due to stairs (two half-flights to enter the performance space, and one flight to access the washrooms). For all other accessibility requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wavelength respects the rights of each member of our diverse audience and is committed to providing an environment in which everyone can feel safe. Any behaviour which could reasonably be perceived as physically, emotionally, or mentally harmful to individuals at Wavelength events will not be tolerated. This includes: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, body shaming, ableism, ageism, and all forms of violence.
Please be respectful of others and help Wavelength create a fun and safer space for everyone. If you need help, or see others in need of help, please talk to a Wavelength staff member or volunteer.
