Indie Fridays: Chloe Watkinson, Carol Ellyn, Shred Kelly, The Achromatics
Score big at YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE (YDS) with CHEVROLET INDIE FRIDAYS, the popular multicultural free concert series every Friday night in the Heart of the City, from June 29 to August 31. Join YDS on the sunny side of the street for ten weeks of performances from Canada’s brightest artists!
And, each week two Canadian graffiti artists will come together to showcase their unique creative style and individuality while drawing inspiration from the music of the week. The canvas for their art will be a wrapped Chevrolet Cruze Sedan that will provide a striking visual amidst the vibrant lights and sounds of the Square.
On Friday, July 20, YDS is all ears for an eclectic combination of acts. Fresh off her critically acclaimed solo show at Toronto’s Opera House, Chloe Watkinson headlines with her rich soulful vocals. She is preceded by show opener Carol Ellyn, sharing her dreamy pop tunes. Also opening are Shred Kelly, who produce a genre all their own with a bold mix of electronic and folk. Joining them is big band The Achromatics, playing Latin/Motown fusion tunes that are almost as loud as their spandex stage costumes.
