The Tenenbaums
The Tenenbaums are a 3-piece punk-rock band based out of eastern Ontario, Canada. Raised just outside of Ottawa, these three country kids like to party, wear old sole'd shoes, play loud music (sometimes soft) and most importantly have a damn good time watching the Royal Tenenbaums. In there early 20's, ambition has yet to stray making for an energetic raw sound.
We love music and we love you.

David Dino White
Born and raised in North Bay, Ontario, David’s ability to harness his guitar's full potential as a trans-genre instrument is what defines his unique and haunting style. Every song begs to be listened to more than once, rich with complexity both lyrically and melodically.

Mellow, warm, and atmospheric; three words that capture the vibe of Grandyzer's music perfectly. After releasing several tracks over the past year through social media outlets, the Ottawa-based producer has finally put together a DJ set of self-produced tracks that blend trip-hop with other ambient beat-based electronic genres. With this upcoming performance, Grandyzer aims to leave listeners immersed in the relaxing atmospheres of his chillout tunes, while hopefully stirring up excitement over his upcoming releases.
It all started about 20 years ago...when the Internet was but a concept for the military elite, and then came globalisation. The music flow has, is, and forever and always will be unam's motto. Blending state-of-the-art multimedia animation with inspired momentum, unam blends the arts like a nice smoothie. Try it for yourself, and taste the love. For this show, unam will clash electronica with some ol' songs of his own as well as some pre-2000 kickass covers, to commemorate it's twentieth anniversary.

Elephant Skeletons
Elephant Skeletons sounds like a crew of gypsy rockers threw a disco dance marathon. Often gritty, exploding with unexpected, kaleidoscopic bursts of sitar and circus horns, and occupying the sweet spot somewhere between Daft Punk and Beats Antique, Elephant Skeletons is the soundtrack to the party everyone wishes they knew about. Driving beats melded with kletzmer brass create a sound that's simultaneously cutting-edge-danceable and filled with serious soul.
Woodsworthy (the metro gnome)
Owner of Gnohm Studios, Zach's productions and mixes vary in style & BPM, but hold a very organic, tribal and psychedelic feel. His mix for CW touches on mid-tempo psychedelic bass music, moombahton, breakbeat, glitch-hop and much more.
A talented sound designer & DJ we are very pleased to feature Zach as a talented and diverse artist from the far east of our home land.
Born of the genius of Jordan Craig and Aaron Sager-Yung ONFIILM is a magical spaceship of Post Punk Abrasive Blues.
The sounds of ONFIILM take the listener down a dirty but sparkling intergalactic black hole and into a magical plane of shoe gaze psychedelia. The lyrics are terrestrial but the vibe is extra.
