Open Roof Festival’s moviegoers will be treated to a live performance by The Darcys, a Toronto-based four piece, post-soul shoegaze band. Their forthcoming self-titled album will be released this fall and has been described as “a dense, challenging, monstrously tuneful prog-rock epic that improbably finds common ground between Radiohead and Steely Dan,” by the Toronto Star‘s Ben Rayner.
Open Roof Festival is a Toronto summer movie series located outdoors with the city as its backdrop. Each night of the festival – running Thursdays from June 16th through September 1st – will feature a live band and a great flick under the nighttime hue of city lights. The mandate of Open Roof Festival is to provide Toronto with an outdoor summer experience that highlights independent artists from Canada and around the world. It’s more than just another night at the movies, it’s an evening of arts and entertainment in support of Toronto’s independent film community.
