In case you missed the first edition of Pique presented by Debaser at Club SAW and streamed live on June 12, the local underground music presenter has uploaded tons of material for on-demand viewing. Head over to thisispique.com to catch performances by Asuquomo, Orchidae, Golbon Moltaji, respectfulchild, Ami Dang, Lauren Bousfield, and Matthew Cardinal.
Shot behind closed doors at Club SAW, their extraordinary sets were part of a 5-hour broadcast produced by Debaser and Ottawa’s Firegrove Studio. Their plan is to curate a lineup for Pique every three months and future editions of the event will welcome audiences to Club SAW and throughout the historic Arts Court building in downtown Ottawa.
Asuquomo’s unique set features the hip hop artist accompanied by three dancers, who Asuquomo leads in choreography while singing and rapping and at a fiery speed. The lighting at Club SAW is on point and the technical team and camera operators behind the event are part of what make Pique one of the most outstanding live music productions taped in Ottawa (!) since the pandemic pushed artists into this digital realm.
