The full list of performers has yet to be released, but it features Kemba, Kipp Stone, Mother Nature, ShowYouSuck, Khary, Dave B.  Watch the documentary, and then take a listen to 'Whiskey and Push-Ups'.




Coming Soon: Jamila Woods LIVE in Toronto

This is one show that's simply too important to miss.  Jamila Woods is on tour to support the re-release of her debut album HEAVN.  This incredible record was originally released by Closed Sessions back in July of 2016.  The re-release is collaboration with Jagjaguwar, and it is the perfect way for this powerful music to find its way to new ears.  The tour stops in Toronto on July 21st at the Garrison, just over a year after HEAVN was initially released.  Whether you're celebrating a brilliant album, or discovering bold new music, this show is too good to pass up.  Get your tickets here.
