There were many highlights in 2012 for The Wedge. And if we could air them all, well, we’d need a ten-hour special. So, we got ruthless and chopped them down to 30 minutes… or 22 with commercials. Best of all though, Damian shot his throws in the super secret, we-probably-even-shouldn’t-be-posting-this Wedge archive located three miles [...]

When Damian was a young lad, his mom said he was not allowed to frequent the mean Toronto street of Ossington. (It’s an Avenue, actually.) Well, the times have changed and Ossington has gentrified and become one of the nicer strips in the city. Picking up a piece of pizza from his favourite, Pizza Libretto, [...]

Damian and The Wedge crew recently traveled out east to Nova Scotia to take in this year’s Halifax Pop Explosion!, an international music festival and conference that presents 150 bands in 20 venues over 5-days to over 20,000 fans and industry delegates from around the world.

This past Monday night, the 2012 Polaris Music Prize went down at the Masonic Temple in Toronto. The prize, which celebrates the best in Canadian music, ended up going to Feist for her album, Metals. She took home $30,000 and bragging rights for having the best Canadian album of the past year. But the night [...]

Having sold over 1.5 million copies of their self-titled debut, London’s The xx continued to make big waves out of minimal music this week when their second album debuted the top five of both Canadian and American charts, as well as reach #1 in the UK. Their music is hushed, delicate and warm, and when [...]

Two months ago, Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr.) released his sophomore album, Confess, which like his 2010 debut, was critically acclaimed and demonstrated his impressive progression as an artist. During a recent trip to Toronto, Lewis sat down with Damian to discuss his persona, how serious he is about acting and betting on himself [...]

While we know him as the very huggable, excited host of The Wedge, it’s always nice to get a glimpse of Damian at work fronting his band Fucked Up. This past Sunday, Damian took part in Riot Fest, a full-day festival that showcases some of punk’s best, both past and present. Besides Fucked Up, the [...]

Recently Damian had a picnic with Toronto’s Eight and a Half, a supergroup consisting of Broken Social Scene (Justin Peroff) and Stills members (Dave Hamelin, Liam O’Neil). The guys sat down in the park to choose some videos, talk about the new-ish “man band”, gorge on some “straight edge” wine and “normal” cheese, and then [...]
