By Divine Right – Past The Stars (Video)

BY DIVINE RIGHT release a brand new video for “Past The Stars” from “Organized Accidents” available now in blue translucent vinyl in our HDD STORE! “Past The Stars is about space aliens waiting for them to come and get me and my son. It’s also about how being in a touring band is like being space aliens visiting different world and then leaving back into the “black” between planets between cities. Its title was suggested to me years ago by a little boy i met in Ohio.” ~ Jose

Doomsquad at The ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO

Last winter, two monthly events took Toronto by storm, drawing sold out crowds and incredible artists. One was AGO First Thursdays, a monthly celebration of music, art, and culture that opened up the doors to Toronto’s most prestigious art museum to throngs of new audiences. The other was Long Winter, a monthly event at The Great Hall that featured the city’s most cutting-edge independent and underground musicians, artists, performers, and DJs. For one night only, on January 2, the two events merge for AGO First Thursdays: Long Winter Takeover.

The 5th floor of the AGO’s contemporary tower will turn into a music and installation space, featuring performances by Snowblink and Doomsquad w/ Not The Wind Not The Flag, and immersive installations by Paul Kneale, Tough Guy Mountain, and Anni Spadafora. Plus, a conversation with artists Shary Boyle, Vanessa Dunn, Petra Collins and Aminah Sheikh, presented by After School and Hazlitt.

Meanwhile, in Galleria Italia, DJ Stelmanis (Katie Stelmanis of Austra) will spin. In the Atrium, Dangling Participle, presented by Kate Young, Adam Terejko, Dan Thornhill, Robin Clason, Cell Memory, and Processor, will create an interactive video portrait installation with a live soundtrack. And Isla Craig and Henri Fabergé will offer pop-up performances around the galleries. Plus enjoy a Moroccan menu, cash bars around the Gallery and more!

A First Thursday like no other – don’t miss it!
