Deux Trois is the project of Kingstonians Nadia Pacey (of Konig), Benjamin Nelson (of PS I Love You), and Ben Webb (of Carvings & We Are Adam West). Pacey and Nelson met in 2015 at The Artel in Kingston. They ended up playing a number of the same shows as Konig and Slow High, respectively. Pacey produced electronic music independently and experimented with performance art for the stage for four years before she took up an offer from Slow High to be her backing band for a single show in August 2017.
Band-member Benjamin Nelson is the designer of the KCFF19 artwork! Deux Trois have contributed to the soundtrack film for local feature film Who is Bruce Kauffman?, which will be playing at the Fest this year.
Saturday // 11 pm
Sleezer plays Weezer. And only Weezer. They play the “blue” album and “pinkerton” from front to back, with a smattering of greatest hits in between! Long-time festival sponsor/supporter, Matthew Fry, is the General Manager of the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel! Each year, they come on board to host directors, actors, cast, and crew that attend KCFF. In addition, to being a great KCFF supporter, Matthew is the lead singer of Sleezer, eastern Ontario’s premiere Weezer tribute band. After the movies, unwind with Sleezer and all the hits you know and love!
