After a quiet year off, DIVORCE is pleased to finally announce a fifth installment of The OBEY Convention, Halifax's springtime festival of damaged music and art. Some of the acts scheduled to perform include lectro-pop futurist Gary War (New York - Sacred Bones, Spectral Spools, Captured Tracks), acoustic guitar virtuoso Bill Orcutt (San Francisco - Editions Mego, Palilalia), renowned pop-noise-junk whiz-kid Eric Copeland of Black Dice (New York - Paw Tracks, Post Present Medium), hissing and snarling one-man band phenom Bloodshot Bill (Montreal - Norton Records), and punk hustlers The Pink Noise (Montreal - Sacred Bones, Pleasance Records).

DIVORCE will present a full roster of its own current and upcoming artists including Jerry Granelli, Shearing Pinx (Vancouver), Torso, Husband & Knife, J fm (Toronto), and You'll Never Get to Heaven (London, ON). Also, look forward to light and moving image shows by Robert Drisdelle and Jacquline Lachance, a video installation by James Gauvreau, the Crowd Control Sound & Art Fair, an experimental video mixtape curated by Heather Rappard, performance art by space&time and FRANKIE, a Weird Canada showcase, a Periodical Project launch party, plenty of free happenings, and lots more.
