World News Love Themselves As Much As They Love You
Toronto electronic hardware duo, World News have just announced two shows. That's right, they're scheduled to flood Toronto's Handlebar and Sarnia's Maud's Variety with cavernous synthesized sound in just a few weeks.
Not only that, but there's a plethora of incredible talent performing alongside them... and perhaps more importantly there is a hardware focus with all the acts. Get ready for big saws, envelopes, knob twiddling and spooky vocals all around.
TORONTO: Saturday January 21st 2023
w/ MOONBEAN and Erin Corbett
SARNIA: Friday January 27th 2023
Erin Corbett is a non-binary experimental musician that makes incredible decomposing and abstract electronic soundscapes with infectious stuttering grooves.
MOONBEAN is a queer Toronto-based artist, just back from an epic European tour! Led by Katy, expect a glittering hardware performance with big hooks and melodies, but watch out for the dancing caped crusader.
GUCC are Sarnia's premier synth and electronic group, making fun and funky, often humorous music. Who knows, perhaps Bill will be there to sing a little wrestling dittie for the first time ever (check here if this tickles your fancy)?
And then of course, there's World News. What can we say about those guys... the picture below says it all. This will be the second show with all new music, all new synthesizers, and an all new lineup.
So yah, see you in the mosh pit.

The First Ever Safe Sounds Show in 360° - World News Are Back
Safe Sounds presents...
WORLD NEWS in 360° with BLUE LIGHT and PROVINCIAL PARCS.
We might not be the first to do a show like this... U2 famously coined the 360° Tour a few years back when they crafted a unique stage that was surrounded by the audience. After a few calls with Bono and The Edge, they've very kindly given this their blessing!
In what will be a very special intimate show at Bar Orwell in Toronto on Thursday 17th November, all three acts will perform live hardware sets from underneath the mirror ball! Surrounded by the audience, this will be a true 360° electronic music experience.
World News have brand new music and a brand new lineup to keep you entertained. It's going to be spicy and electronic.
Blue Light will bring their unique blend of cinematic electronic wash. It will rock you to your very core!
Provincial Parcs will add a psychedelic jazz heart to proceedings. The rig, which was first used for the Geary Art Crawl show, will be back bigger and better!
Bar Orwell is a limited capacity venue at 1595 Dundas Street West. Early Bird Tickets are on sale now for the measly price of just $10. It's going to be more on the door, so grab yours now to cement your place!
