Art Department at Underground Story Stage
The "Underground" stage was indeed below ground, at least by comparison to the rest of Ultra, tucked in Bayfront Park’s far corner, obscured by trees, down at the bottom of a hill. Which was actually idyllic. Especially when Art Department’s Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow dug into their wiggly, wobbly, mid-range bump 'n' swoon. Glasgow eschewed any of his stagy vocal flourishes, but considering the manic, no-attention-span theater transpiring elsewhere, the Toronto duo’s sophisticatedly raw groove was refreshing.
