So far in 2022, Daniel Monkman has released two EPs as Zoon (Big Pharma and A Sterling Murmuration) plus a collaborative album as OMBIIGIZI (Sewn Back Together). As if they weren't already busy enough, they just landed a new gig: curating Wavelength's concert series.

Monkman's title with the Toronto non-profit organization is Artistic Associate. They will be curating Wavelength's monthly concert series and annual festivals for the 2022–2023 season. 

"I'm excited to have a chance to book the bands that I want to see," Monkman said in a statement. "I spent a lot of time feeling that the type of music I was into was underrepresented in Canada's music scene. A lot of the folks I want to present are very unique, and I'm looking forward to showcasing some really deserving artists. You don't see a lot of artists or curators like me, but things are changing, so it's important for people like me to get these positions. Wavelength encourages this kind of experimentation and a culture of being open to anything. That's just like my art practice."

Monkman's curated series begins on Sunday, November 20, with a double bill of Charles Spearin and Sunnsetter at 918 Bathurst. After that, Thus Owls and Shirley Hurt will perform at the same venue on December 1. Tickets for both shows are available from Wavelength's website.

Stay tuned for more concerts curated by Monkman.
