Secret Broadcast @ The Horseshoe Tavern – Indie Week Rewind (Photoset)

Secret Broadcast @ The Horseshoe Tavern – Indie Week Rewind (Photoset)

Secret Broadcast is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. The Toronto based band, originally from Calgary Alberta has shared the stage with Metric, The New Pornographers, and Tokyo Police Club. Fronted by Matt Lightstone and Curtis Harding, Secret Broadcast is a testament to the aliveness of awesome Canadian alternative music.

The band performed last year – in the before times – at Toronto’s legendary Horseshoe Tavern, on Queen West and we were lucky enough to be on hand with a camera to catch some of the show.

“The best thing to come out of Calgary since, well, ever, Secret Broadcast proves it’s possible to make basic rock ’n’ roll actually seem interesting. Imagine Radiohead if they’d formed in the early ’80s, and you only start to get the idea.” – The Georgia Straight

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)
