{AN} EeL - Birthday A Cappella

Ever since washing up on our shores, Neal D. Retke (who performs as {AN} Eel) has been spreading joy and preaching the benefits of D.I.Y. co-operation. A busy member of the international home-taping circuit known for his many collaborative projects, this festival arose from a desire to bring together some of the different musicians he's encountered here so far, mixing together songs and noises over two days in the G.A.S.'s cozy east-end space.

With time growing short at the end of a day packed with music, Retke played the consummate host by cutting short his own festival-closing set — despite the fact it was his own birthday! An ambitious thing done well, here's hoping that this festival makes a return next year.
