Director: George Vale, 2009
The Wavelength Music Series is at the heart of Toronto's independent music scene: its Sunday night PWYC shows have featured early performances by Broken Social Scene, Peaches, Final Fantasy and hundreds of other less-known but equally influential talents from the city and beyond. East Coast boy Brian Borcherdt found Wavelength when he landed here and was inspired by the eclectic acts he witnessed there to create his own experimental project: the electronic improv outfit Holy Fuck. Brian takes a break from touring the world with Holy Fuck to sit down at Sneaky Dee's and recount how his debut performance at Wavelength there had unexpected results. A high-energy and humorous retrospective, featuring exclusive live performance footage and Brian's hand-drawn "family tree" of Wavelength bands.
