Wavelength, which has been held Sunday nights in Toronto for most of this decade, recently announced it would change format to become more "special events" focussed.
Wavelength launched in 2000 as a weekly series and was originally held at Toronto's Ted Wrecking Yard. It moved to Sneaky Dee's in 2002, where it has usually been held since. It's become a fixture of the Toronto music scene and has become known for introducing acts like Broken Social Scene, Holy Fuck, Crystal Castles, Final Fantasy and Tokyo Police Club.
