The 4th annual Indieweek took over the clubs of Toronto (October 9-13) for what could be considered a battle of the bands royal rumble. Featuring over 50 independent acts, playing 8 clubs in 5 days, Indieweek was sensory overload of where to go and who to see. Bands came as far as Ireland just to be heard and have a chance to compete for 1 of 2 prize packages that included cash, guitars, a wireless mic, recording time, advertising, distribution, CD replication, and many other pieces of swag.

There’s a lot more to Ireland than U2 and Whisky. Irish rockers Vesto Varro has a sound so dynamic and solid with lyrics so fresh and original they’re bound to take over North American airwaves in the same fashion they already dominate their native land.
Their debut album Exit Here has already produced two top 40 hits in Ireland, and their third single “ Weighted Love” will be released October 19. Though they thrive in their home country, they’re currently facing a problem many international bands face: North American distribution.
When Morgan David described his music “like Fatboy Slim and Bob Dylan went out and raved ’till dawn” on his Myspace page he wasn’t being vain. He is a man in control of his domain, which is especially impressive considering the construction of his techno influenced rock was years in the making.
Active in the techno community, Morgan is a mixer by day and, well, also a mixer by night. Gigging is something he began only last year, but his music has been recognized as unique and fascinating ever since. Although the acoustics in the Drake during his Indie Week performance made the bass overwhelming, the ambiance and mood of the music, combined with his comical in-between song banter made Morgan’s set one of the most enchanting to watch.
