Tickets $45 plus fees.

With ambient soundscapes, chaotic crescendos, and mainly instrumental songs, GY!BE are perhaps best known for their song ‘East Hastings’ which was the main song used in the 2002 film 28 Days Later. Through extensive touring, the band has gained a reputation for mesmerising live shows marked by orchestral dynamics, epic rock power and clunky, beautiful film loops. Godspeed includes experimental filmmaker Karl Lemieux, the band’s primary creator (and projectionist) of 16mm film footage and loops; an array of analog film projectors remains central to GY!BE’s live performances.

Mat Ball

Mat Ball is an experimental guitar player from Montreal, Canada. A founding member of the group BIG|BRAVE in existence since 2012, over the last few years he has been quietly developing and working on solo guitar music. Very much like his work with BB, relying heavily on amplitude and feedback with a strong emphasis on minimalism and the drone, deconstruction is a key element in his compositions.

Please note: tickets are only available through the Kingston Grand Theatre Box Office and are not available as a selection on a Festival Pass.
