Ursa (7:00PM)
Saskatoon, SK
Ursa is the ambient electronic project of Lenore Maier (The Garrys, Bunwitch). Her works sway between drone and dream, somewhere between sound effect and musical sound. Whether flatlined by drone, or pulsating at 120 bpm, Ursa’s debut album “Prism System” possesses a heartbeat that navigates fluidly through the liminal spectrum of time, dream state and hypnagogic consciousness. 

Daisy D (8:00PM)
Victoria, BC
Born and raised in Calgary, Daisy D has spent the last year living in Victoria where she’s perfected the art of booty house and hyperspeed 90s eurohouse. While she’s found the perfect home for her booty house playing queer parties on the island, her deep roots in Calgary tie her to well-known projects such as CITADEL (melodic ritual drone), along with a heavy involvement in the Discord noise shows happening from 2006-2010.
