Interview With Pterodactyl Problems – Indie Week Rewind
Interview with Toronto heavy alt-rock Pterodactyl Problems at Revival Bar during Indie Week 2019! Pterodactyl Problems combines singer-songwriter compositions with crushing guitar, pounding drums, and an outrageous dash of glam. We chatted about what problems a pterodactyl might have, their latest music video, their music, Indie Week and if you stick around until the end, we get a serenade ending!
Pterodactyl Problems have risen to save rock from extinction — and not a moment too soon.
These fiercely original Torontonians are a gender-bending, genre-defiling hybrid gene-spliced from four distinct personalities: An outrageous frontman who probes dark emotional truths while clad in full drag; two unrepentant metalheads underpinning his devastating messages with crushing intensity; and a meticulous musical mad scientist sprinkling jazz, blues, classical and more into their alt-metal DNA. It aligns in their debut album Esoteric Hobbies — a dynamic, diverse disc that heralds the next stage in the evolution of rock. Those lucky enough to witness their high-energy performances know the awesome power of this four-headed, fire-breathing beast. The world won’t be far behind. It’s evolution, baby. Just in the nick of time.

In celebration of Indie Week’s return, Dropout Entertainment will be featuring “Indie Week Rewind” all this week, with photos, interviews, live videos and previously unreleased material from 2019’s festival. Indie Week is one of Canada’s leading festivals for independent music and we’re excited to reminisce in it’s glory before heading into it’s 2020 edition, which runs from November 10th to 14th.
The 18th edition of Indie Week Canada is switching gears by offering a 5-day online conference. 2020 has brought many changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in response, what would normally be an in person event taking place across multiple venues in Toronto, will now be online. This will allow for more international attendees and connections than ever before.
“Indie Week Canada is committed to using this online platform to be a leader moving forward in a positive direction. Connecting artists, industry and fans from around the world is more important now than ever before as the music industry adapts and evolves. Now is the time to log on, connect, and move forward together.”
-Darryl Hurs (Indie Week founder)
