About

Come, my children, and hear the divine teachings of the one true Glitter Jesus. This fuzz-filled sermon will restore your faith in sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Hear the biblical, interstellar tale of the prophet/cult leader/ego maniac, Kurt Marble. His ridiculous doctrine tells the story of a post a-rock-alyptic world, in which he once lived, and his quest to come to earth. Fleeing from the evil Silver Rider and his army of Replacements, and meeting the white haired goddess Mother of the Mountains, Kurt Marble learns the meaning of life. And he has come to share it with us all. Bask in the glory of the man himself, as he and his Glitter Apostles present their offerings of a better life through righteous heavy guitar hooks and filthy solos. This spectacle will open your eyes to a new consciousness, a new spirit, and a new sense of being. It will also be very loud. Prepare to bathe in glitter and be born again, a newer, sexier human. Amen.

Curator's Note

"The terms “up­and­comer,” and “one to watch” get thrown around a lot in the music scene in Toronto, but anyone who has been to a Kurt Marble show knows how applicable it is in this case. Whimsical, fun and impeccably tight musicianship is on offer with an impressive aspect of energetic theatricality. When Kurt submitted his first rock­opera to the festival, we had to accept." - Adam Bradley and Andrew Pulsifer
