Moon King is the alias of producer, singer and songwriter Daniel Benjamin. Born in Toronto, the musician spent 2016 in Detroit, where the musically fertile and offbeat neighborhood of Hamtramck became both his home and the inspiration for a new set of recordings. Hamtramck ’16 documents his arrival into a new and unfamiliar environment combined with a growing obsession for underground dance music, a sound and spirit that has always felt right at home in Detroit. Collaborating with local artists and musicians, and having the freedom to stretch out after several years of constant touring, Daniel put together a completely new band with a sound drawing from dance music‘s early days, from synthpop, disco and house music up through the more pop-oriented songcraft of the Bee Gees or Prince. Daniel’s attention to detail in production, and willingness to break the mold of what he sees as his own potential, have made him an interesting figure to watch. With Hamtramck ’16 he has created a lo-fi pop gem that will leave listeners eager to hear what comes next.


Conceived amidst the clutter of dank DIY loft spaces in Montreal’s Griffintown, Nick Persons began in earnest as the vehicle for multi-disciplinary artist and producer Jackson Darby’s shakily constructed sound collages. Expanding to include DJ Choozey Dollarbin$z for live manipulations and rhythmic destabilization, the project eventually grew out of its dilapidated foundations in hip hop and male given name, adding members Katie McDonald and Benita Whyte who bring their vocal, visual, dance and performance stylings to the quartet. The now Hamilton, Ontario based, PERSONS delivers sets of high energy dance music that doesn’t forget its free-form, noisey roots. Through improvised choreography, hypnotic repetition and glitter glazed visuals, they seek to express, include, move and integrate its audience into their singular brand of immersive ecstasy while experimenting with different modes of performance.

FRIDAY Cleveland No Wave legends X__X w/ Pow Wows & Noble Savages

Folks, this one is going to blow the roof off the old Saint.

X___X (“ex blank ex”)
“A turbulent quartet that tore through Cleveland like a Dadaist cyclone for six months in 1978. Preceding his imminent relocation to NYC, burly, blond brawler John D Morton assembled the project as a tighter, more rocking successor to his storied proto-punk act, the electric eels.” -Ektro Records
Six months, two KBD 45s and five shows.

*”The record I’d brought home was wild: Its atonal droning, lurching rhythms, skronky guitars and snarling vocals suggested a Midwestern cousin to New York’s “no wave” movement. This was literally art-punk.” -New York Times

The latest incarnation of X__X also features Craig Bell (Mirrors, Rocket from the Tombs, the Down-fi) and is amazing live.

You will be sorry if you miss this show!

Support from Toronto fuzz beat garage monsters THE POW WOWS (get hip records). “One of the mainstays of the Toronto garage rock scene, the Pow Wows like their music fast, loud, and atmospheric, giving their tunes a buzzy, swampy tone and a psychedelic overlay that sets them apart from other fuzzbox manglers following similar paths.” – Mark Deming, Allmusic.com

And local hooligans THE NOBLE SAVAGES: Back from the dead with a truly savage “new” drummer and wilder sound. (Plus a few surprises.)

PLUS DJ Rob Sikora will be spinning fascinating musical gems all night long
