In case you're wondering what Saturday's More Proof 7 looked like...
Shit was packed, and visuals by Pilotpriest were mad. He also dropped a sweet set of his own tunes, which you can check out here.

MEGASOID are Sixtoo, and Hadji from Wolf Parade. They like to rock parties under bridges, with their sick, pounding soundystem, the Megasoid Remix PA. It's full of Doepfer modules, and the thing must cost a fortune, but I imagine it's an ongoing project that will just build itself eventually. Sixtoo will have a brain wave monitor that will allow him to make beats electro-telepathically, and Hadji's muscle electrodes will cook samples every time he twiches his shoulder. I can see Ghislain Poirier getting pulled in by a length of patch cable tentacles.
The reggae track from that clip comes from Barrington Levy, original dancehall king. The tune is called "Here I Come", and it dates back 22 years. CIUT did a live broadcast of his Harbourfront show on Sunday night, so I had the stage feed glued to my ears in the booth just behind the tech hut. We made sure the crowd mic was up, because the big thing at a Levy show is the shoutbacks and hollas.
The above clip is from 1985, and I can assure you that this song has grown in massiveness with age. Levy was so sick, and the only thing that kept me from jumping off a bridge for missing Daft Punk over work was his relentless energy and "dilee-oh-oh-oh's".
Speaking of Daft Punk, the Toronto vids are up and they just keep comin'.
Ok, now I'm going to go jump off a bridge.

For those who collect music from behind the Iron Curtain, it should be no surprise that Hungary was done up from head to toe with amazing rock bands from the early 60s all the way into the 80s. Despite all the influence of government censorship, and all the associated hardships of life in the Soviet bloc, Hungarians embraced the freedom to sing about love and having a good time, which allowed them to cloak subversion for decades.
Let's start with Illés, one of the early Magyar beat groups, who have been around as long as the Beatles.
Zalatnay Sarolta was the most adored singer in Hungarian history. She toured the world, and almost married a Bee Gee. To Hungarians, she was their beloved "Cini".
Koncz Zsuzsa was pretty close in the ranks, and alongside Zalatnay, she shared singing duties for the most famous groups in the country.
Skorpio started in the psychadelic era but ended up doing the Iron Maiden thing.
MORE PROOF @ THE DRAKE SAT AUG 11 ft. Johnny Hockin, Gabe Knox, Andre9, Colin Bergh, Yr Boy Brian, and Pilot Priest (also responsible for stunning, maddening visuals from an as of yet unquantified dimension) PWYC
Also, check out Mr. Knox rock the bass in his band Diemonds, who play a free show on Friday...
