Toronto AFTERMATH festival announces inaugural event
AFTERMATH I, a post-apocalyptic music festival and “end of the world costume party,” makes its debut on March 29 at Toronto’s Velvet Underground. The inaugural event features Metropolis Records act A Primitive Evolution as the headliner, with support performances by local dark underground bands Hot Lips, SQUID LID, Phantom High, and Dirty Wizardz, set to a backdrop of desolate atmosphere designed by local artists Stu Dead of Playdead Cult and James Fisher of Zirco Fisher Art x Music. Post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk, and industrial/gothic attire is encouraged, but not required, with tickets are available online for $15, or $20 at the door. Additional information can be found on the event’s Facebook page.
This event is unrelated to the similarly named Aftermath Festival held in 2015 in response to the closing down of the much revered Kinetik Festival. According to Brett Carruthers of A Primitive Evolution, “When we announced this event, we did not realize that we had the same name as them. We have since reached out to the promoters of the original Aftermath and got their blessing for the usage of the name for this event.”
