Shout Out: City Sonic video series.

Last month, as part of NxNE, I went to the launch party for the City Sonic series at the Drake Hotel. This great new music documentary project features Toronto artists and the places that were important to them. Each film is directed by a different person, and taken together, they give a wonderful glimpse into the past and present of Toronto's music scene. I saw 5 films at the Drake, but they've only slowly been making their way to the internet so everyone else can see them. Just out now is the one featuring Brian Borcherdt (from Holy Fuck) and Wavelength / Sneaky Dee's.

Here it is:



I love it. For more video history lessons with Brian Borcherdt, check out Colin Medley's Soundcheck episode.

You can subscribe to the City Sonic Youtube channel to be notified every time a new episode it released. You will want to see them all.
