To Khyber, with love

Local musicians team up to release a compilation tape in the name of fundraising.

The idea to put together a compilation tape as a fundraiser for the much-loved centre for everything artsy came from the brain of the Khyber's director Dan Joyce, who appointed Ryan Allen (Cold Warps, Quivers) the project's talent wrangler. And wrangle he did. After much hard work from many Khyber-lovers, the compilation boasts 19 new or unreleased tracks from the likes of Duzheknew, Cousins, Mean Wind, Fuck Montreal and Bloodhouse. And R&B fans, fear not...Long Long Long's side project Trash Heap made sure you'll get your fix with their rendition of "You Make Me Wanna," which Allen calls an "awesome treat." Celebrate the release Saturday night and break out your tape deck in the name of the Khyber, people---48 minutes of cassette glory is just seven bucks. –Allison Saunders

Saturday Feb 5, The Khyber ICA, 1588 Barrington Street, 10pm, $5
