We outed Ken Kostick back in April as of being Ukrainian descent. We’re not really sure if anyone else noticed, so we’ll take that as the festival organizers are readers of our site 🙂

Ukraine’s Music Sensation MAD HEADS XL perform at a special launch party tonight at ‘My Place’ 2448 Bloor St. West and perform for the public Saturday night as well.
