The December 2018 installment of Wavelength’s year-round Monthly Music Series, brings together a jam-packed line-up of three local musical artists with three local stand-up comedians, in support of Unison Benevolent Fund. A non-profit, registered charity, the Unison Fund provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. The holidays can be a challenging time for many, and musicians are no exception. Unison Benevolent Fund is here to support professional music makers in times of hardship, illness or economic difficulties, and for our last show of the year, Wavelength is happy to donate a portion of proceeds to this worthy cause. 

Celebrating the ever-vibrant local comedy scene, the stand-up lineup was curated by local comic Theresa Ramirez, and features some performers who appeared at the “Campfire Comedy” stage at Camp Wavelength at Fort York this past summer, including Aisha Brown and host Jackie Pirico, as well as the musical comedy of Marty Topps. And the musical component features the genre diversity Wavelength is renowned for - ranging from the satirical indie-rock of Blimp Rock, to the whimsical, experimental turntalism of SlowPitchSound, to the super-charged indie-pop of JEEN., fronted by Jeen O’Brien, also of Cookie Duster with Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning. The night will start out with a special set by American indie-rock veterans the Thalia Zedek Band at 8pm.
