Foxes In Fiction - March 2011

Wavelength's sixteenth anniversary festival was a little less adventurous than last year's sesquidecade spectacular. For the first time in recent memory, the festival settled into one home base for three nights and the programming eschewed retrospective turns for a future-focused weekend, daring audiences to invest in the musical here-and-now. The lone excursion away from The Garrison came with this afternoon all-ages show in Markham Village — a cozy up-close-and-personal affair that offered a chance to sit on the floor and listen. The field trip vibe was completed with a school bus ride that shuttled attendees away to the evening show. As the afternoon ran out and daylight waned, the room became dark enough to deploy General Chaos' swirling projections, a perfect accompaniment to Warren Hildebrand's slowly-unfurling bedroom pop. This set opener includes an extended instrumental build at the beginning, a perfect bridge into Hildebrand's meticulously-constructed and assuredly-unhurried soundworld.
