New Wax Highlights: Wyrd Distro

wyrd-distro-white_on_blackThe New Wax Show airs each Tuesday @ 3pm on CHRY 105.5 FM. Listen live at chry.fm

Wyrd Distro is a forum used to help promote as well as distribute the music of Canadian artists who do not receive the media exposure they deserve.

The idea of Wyrd Distro was created by Weird Canada, which began as a blog in 2009. After receiving a massive grant from the Canadian government, the not-for-profit aims to become the one stop shop for fans and retailers looking to get their hands on the latest goings on in the Canadian DIY underground. 

The organization wants to encourage, connect and document creative expression across Canada. New Wax reporter Ian Gormely spoke with Weird Canada executive director Marie LeBlanc Flanagan ahead of the distro’s launch party at June Record this Saturday.
