In recent years, the Intersection Festival would normally consist of a paid concert, usually the night before the day-long extravaganza in Yonge-Dundas Square. This year, however, under the continued guidance of Burn Down The Capital's Tad Michalak the festival expanded to four events, including a pair of concerts at The Jam Factory. The day-long marathon in the concrete canyon of commerce remains at the festival's heart, though, exploring the frissons of experiencing strange and occasionally abrasive sounds competing with the city's mersh heartbeat.

Bringing back some of the guitar noise and rock-star moves that they explored in their proto-Invisible Out phase, Xuan Ye and Jason Doell brought some conceptual art-rock to the square, though this time 'round the execution was a bit more practised and thought-through in its attempt to deconstruct itself.

[Invisible Out will be ping-ponging back to their quieter side, playing this weekend's edition of Christopher Willes' Quiet Concerts series at the Scarborough Civic Centre branch of the Toronto Public Library.]
