Beautiful friends! We are thrilled to announce our participation in Love and Light: A Fundraiser for Savannah Welch this Sunday, December 18th! We’ll be playing a 45 minute set in this charity show to benefit Texas-based actress and musician Trisha Welch, who is facing huge medical costs following a car accident and leg amputation. We’re happy to play for this cause and alongside diverse and talented musicians like Lindsay Czitron, FXRRVST, Veronica Crookall and Jessi Henry.
You’ll get a wide scope of music, from folk to pop to country to our weird queer rock. It looks like the acts will start at 9PM, so come even if you’re running late! (And for those of you who missed our album release party a few weeks ago now’s your chance!!)
9PM @ The Central
603 Markham Street
Toronto, ON M6G 2L7
$10 Advance / $15 Door
Thanks to everyone who came out to the COMPACT COLOSSUS album release, and also thanks to everyone who offered well-wishes from afar! It was a DREAM to play with Katey Gatta, Aniqa Dear, and YOU!
I am extremely pleased to announce Crankbox’s FIRST official physical album release! COMPACT COLOSSUS is an 11-track album that is both the best of what we’ve written over the past four years, and a statement about who we are, what we stand for, and who we stand with. Crankbox’s queer indie rock is finally documented in compact disc form! (Online purchases will be available after the show!)
Tickets are $5 at the door — donations will be accepted and appreciated as we’re all poor musicians, but we’re keeping door prices low!
COMPACT COLOSSUS will be sold for $10.

HUGE thanks to everyone who came out to see us at Crankbox at the Horseshoe! We had a great time, bookended by the tight blues rock of Angora and the soaring voice of Katey Gatta. If you missed it, don’t despair – Lexi Laverdiere Photography has some photos up of the newly debuted band aesthetic, and we’ll be ready to announce some new gigs soon…
…one of which will be the CD RELEASE.
COMPACT COLOSSUS is our first live album, and as soon as we have the venue we’ll dish out that event and invite ALL of you to party with us!
See you soon friends <3
