The Dirty B-Sides are an 8-piece experimental hip-hop band led by bandleader and artistic director, Donny Milwalkee. The pure exhilaration behind a band of this magnitude in hip-hop, a style of music oozing with bravado, opens the door like a flood gate to an unforgettable experience. Learning from pivotal artists like KRS-One, Tribe Called Quest, and Busta Rhymes, as well as newer artists like Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, and Joey Bada$$, who are able to evoke a classic hip-hop spirit while being artistically progressive, this band acts as a fresh showcasing band going the extra mile.

Come feel the new Toronto. Come vibe with a young vibrant community of independent creatives and celebrate 5-years of this beautiful movement. None of this no-new-friends, we say make new friends, and bless yourself with deep catalogues of new independent music!
