Frankie and the Witch Fingers

Over the course of five years and five LP’s, L.A. veterans, Frankie and the Witch Fingers, have been mutating and perfecting their high-powered rock n’ roll sound. After savagely touring the USA and Europe, this four-headed beast has shown no signs of relenting—appearing like summoned daemons and dosing crowds with cerebral party fuel.

The main attraction of Frankie and the Witch Fingers is their explosive performance. With their rowdy and visceral approach to live shows, each member brings their own devilry to induce an experience of bacchanal proportions.

Using absurd lyrical imagery—soaked in hallucination, paranoia, and lust—the band’s M.O. strikes into dark yet playful territory. This sense of radical duality is astir at every turn, in every time signature change. Airy vocal harmonies over heavily-serrated riffs. Low-key shamanic roots under vivid high-strangeness. Rambling stretches and punctuated licks. Cutting heads and kissing lips. All this revealing a stereophonic schizophrenia that has flowed throughout their body of work: an ebb & flow of flowery-poppy horror.

The band’s latest incarnation is primed to break new sonic ground, edging into the funky and preternatural. Just when you think the trip couldn’t get any weirder, Frankie and the Witch Fingers cranks up the dial, shatters the mundane, and summons new visions. 

Wine Lips
Toronto based garage punk psych rockers, Wine Lips hit the stage for the first
time in the fall of 2015. Initially a part time project between songwriter/guitar
player, Cam Hilborn and drummer Aurora Evans, the band began playing clubs in
Toronto, stretching organically to surrounding Ontario cities, and then Quebec.
Wine Lips released their self-titled debut LP on indie label Fried Records in 2017
and set out on their first 5-province tour east to Halifax, and haven’t looked back
since. After an appearance in Quebec City, the band was approached with regard
to touring overseas. That chance meeting resulted in an April 2018 tour of Hong
Kong and China, where they were received by enthusiastic audiences.
