Recently absent Canadian psych-pop outfit Saffron Sect are coming out of hiatus mode to play a fundraiser in support of the upcoming rock'n'roll indie flick, Minor.
As part of a fundraising show, Saffron Sect — led by Gaven Dianda, previously a member of power pop unit the Flashing Lights and Thee Gnostics — will play tomorrow (October 4) at Toronto's the Silver Dollar, with opening performances from Ostrich Tuning, New Horizzzons, and the film's lead actresses Elissa Mielke and Tess Parks. You can get more information about the event here.
As for Minor, it tells the story of two Ontario girls who break away from their hometown and drive across the country in the hopes of making it as a band. The film's soundtrack will feature recordings from Canadian rock acts, including Christmas, the Bent Wind, and many more.
The film will be the first of its kind to use the Canadian incarnation of Kickstarter to help fund its production.
