PipeDown! provides an accessible venue for emerging artists to perform indie and/or rock music to audiences with similar tastes.
SAGES, from Hamilton, Ontario, conjures a sensually hypnotic-spiritual display, blending trippy ambiances, hip-hop rhythms, and emotional vocals creating their own style of “emo-electronic.”
Conductor is the electronic songwriting project of Guelph Canada’s Matthew Davey, and creates loop-based rhythms made using drum machines, sample machines, step sequencers, synthesizers and keyboards, navigated simultaneously as a futurist one-man band, and accented by effect-drenched vocals.
Habit is a four-piece rock group from Guelph, ON. Their brand of post-punk deals in abrupt dynamic shifts, alternating between spare, wiry guitar lines and expressionist splatters of noise. Their songs grapple with the drudgerous monotony and everyday violence of adult life, and their live performances are known for an austere sense of dread punctuated by moments of cacophonous catharsis.

Silence Presents provides an accessible venue for touring and professional artists to perform for the Guelph community.
Shari Ulrich is touring Ontario to share the music from her 9th solo album Back To Shore released at the end of June on Borealis records. It is her 25th release including her work with Pied Pumkin, The Hometown Band, UHF (with Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes), BTU (with Barney Bentall & Tom Taylor) and The High Bar Gang.
Shari will perform songs from Back to Shore along with a selection of her original songs from 1976 to the present, on piano, guitar, mandolin & violin with her signature spontaneity, warmth and sense of humour. She encourages concert goers to write her at firstname.lastname@example.org with any special requests for a specific song theyre hoping to hear and she will do her best to include it in the evening.
She will be joined by fellow High Bar Gang Member Kirby Barber on bass and vocals, and Cindy Fairbank on accordion and vocals.
Originally a California girl, Shari’s 45 year career has garnered 2 Juno awards, several nominations, an induction into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, and a 2014 CFMA for English Songwriter of the Year.
This is a rare appearance for Shari in Guelph thanks to the support and cooperation of the dedicated creators of the Silence. space.
