Hamilton super-trio *FREAKY BOOS* are rolling through town on January 11th to launch us into 2019 dancing and dreaming together, forever.
Co-presented with the magical Debaser.
Happening at the wonderful Shanghai Restaurant.
Venue accessibility Info to come.
No mean spirited behaviour of any kind will be tolerated.

Is this a dream, or is this real life? ? ?
Lucky for us, the answer to this question can truly only be discovered through the musical roller coaster journey offered by none other than the Freaky Boos. Comprised of Jackson Darby (Persons, NPNP), Aaron Hutchinson (Hutchie, eschaton, haolin munk), and Becky Katz (Sourpussy, glassEYElashes, Please),
The Freaky Boos unite under the pretense of experimentally-slick yet sonically-glitchy electronic music–forging to the forefront of our surrealities, substantiating our reflexes for more brave, more weird, more succinct “dream” worlds.
Driven by the fiercely decisive direction of Dons Brown (producer), the trio have congruently melded their diverse musical maps to reflect only the brightest and oddest of jazzy tendencies and electro-r&b fevers–paired with a side of spiritual transformations.
“The one thing we do know–dream or not–the time is now. “
Y L A N G Y L A N G (Montreal, QC)
A prolific experiment in the balance between improvisation and composition.

A new thing! A little bit of rock a little bit of pop? Come see it here first.
