Here are the show’s featured artists, in order of appearance:
Lido Pimienta is a singer, songwriter, and visual artist from Baranquilla, Colombia. Her highly-anticipated follow up album, La Papessa has been artfully remixed, and can be listened to here. @LidoPimienta
Expedition to Earth was a Winnipeg garage-psych band that toured heavily throughout the Prairies in the mid 60s, released only one 45, and broke up. Their record became a coveted collectors item for fuzz-heads, fetching over $1000 for original copies on eBay, a fact discovered by Darcie, the wife of guitarist Dan Norton. Fifty years after disbanding, Darcie and Dan have teamed up to form a new band, The Expedition, and are actively playing with a new record coming out soon.
Megan MacKay is a Toronto-based comedian who makes funny YouTube videos, including her breakout satire, Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial. She has been featured on Buzzfeed, Jezebel, and most notably, Elizabeth Banks’s new female-centric comedy site, WhoHaHa (like Funny or Die, but for women). @mmmegan
Nancy Pants is a Montreal garage-pop band. The band was conceived when founding members Ohara Hale and Adam Waito were on a road trip to a comic book convention. Listen to their irresistible, blissed-out dirty pop here. @nancypants4ever
