    The Pack AD

    Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals—this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic and empowering, that it’s easy to forget it's just two people behind this brilliant and carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their blend of heavy psych-pop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are entirely human and complex, tackling real issues with darkly humor or raving about sly crusades against stupidity. Becky and Maya are relentless and riveting, playing with the kind of freedom that makes everybody in the room vicarious rock stars, even if it’s just for the night.

    Suuns

    From the beginning, Suuns (pronounced “soons”, and translates as “zeroes” in Thai) have sought to do things differently. They formed in Montreal 2007, when singer/guitarist Ben Shemie and guitarist Joe Yarmush got together to work on some demos, soon to be joined by Liam, Ben’s old schoolfriend, on drums and Max Henry on synth. Their first two records, 2010’s Zeroes QC and 2012’s Polaris Prize-nominated Images Du Futur–both released on Secretly Canadian –were immediate critical hits, and Suuns soon found themselves part of a late ‘00s musical renaissance in the city, alongside fellow groups like The Besnard Lakes, Islands and Land Of Talk. Still, at the same time, Suuns feel remote from the big, baroque ensembles and apocalyptic orchestras that typify the Montreal scene. “We write quite minimal music,” thinks Ben. “They’re not traditional song forms, sometimes they don’t really go anywhere –but they have their own kind of logic.” Or as Joe puts it: “It’s pop music, but sitting in this evil space.”

    The Burning Hell

    The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom. Having been on the road since since 2007 the band has played everywhere from festivals like Glastonbury and Dawson City to bars, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France. They run the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love. Set to release Public Library, a new album of distorted story-songs, in April 2016, and they’ll spend the better part of the spring and summer in their natural habitat: the tour van.

What is MoSo?

MoSo is a combined event that is part conference and part music festival. It's based on the idea that like-minded people will come together and add their ripple to create a bigger wave.  This year, MoSo is taking things a step further by going well beyond our roots of technical and social media ideas.  Sure, we’re still about social media marketing and digital development, but we’re also diving into the deep end with graphic designers, writers, musicians, software developers, artists...anyone that considers themselves creative.  

 

MoSo is  a convergence of creativity.  Share, collaborate, and cultivate your ideas into something truly amazing.
