As OBEY Convention prepares for its tenth anniversary this coming spring, we’re excited to announce that our programming will be expanding; growing a little older, and a little wiser. Starting in November of 2016 we’ll be hosting an off-season programme that’ll see innovative artists coming from across North America to present their work here in Halifax. We’ve invited a wide range of artist who we feel have pushed modern composition forward, opening ears to new sonic territories.
To kick things off and to help support the programme, we’ve enlisted some of our closest friends for a fundraiser event. On Saturday, November 5th, we’re throwing down a double-vision quest at the Khyber ICA and Art Bar +Projects, featuring the performative debut of gBloo-bies (Hannah Guinan & Co.), the dimensional folk sounds of Husband & Knife and Chik White, slippergaze godmothers Not You, and industro-punks Dri Hiev and Commodifier. Rounding out the ambience will be DJ Jessssse, and projectionist Cale Bradbury.
We’ll be announcing the details of the off-season programme at the show, as well as launching a new membership platform. If you believe in what we do, please consider coming out and showing some love. We’ve got a big year coming up, and your support means so much to us. Hope to see you there!
