Recording: Neon Wave

Artist: Neon Wave

Song: unknown*

Recorded at Lakeview Stage ("Dundas West Fest"), June 6, 2015.

Neon Wave - unknown

For the second year running, The Garrison showed its community spirit, programming a day's worth of live music in the parking lot across the street from them. With a zero per cent chance of rain and the sun in that not-too-hot-not-too-cool zone, it was a pretty perfect day to stand in the street and take in some music. Top-notch sound kept heads turning throughout the day, and there was enough variety to appeal to various segments of the passers-by.

This band name was unfamiliar to me, but a familiar face put it all into context. Fronted by Garrison bartender Norm Maschke (ex-Whale Tooth), this band only has a handful of gigs under their belt, but they do seem well on their way to staking out a sonic identity. Their name, in fact, is a decent nod in that direction, conjuring up a certain atmospheric quality, perhaps one recalled with a grainy 80's VHS haze. They don't seem to have much of an online presence yet, so you'll just have to check'em out live for now.

[Neon Wave will be playing at Handlebar at midnight on Saturday, June 20th.]
