NICHOLAS KRGOVICH is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work with No Kids, Gigi and P:ano. Even though the material is often wildly diverse, there is an unmistakable sense of Krgovich’s deep commitment to exploring the endless possibilities of pop, his discerning ear for sonic detail, and an ambition that willfully borders on the absurd.
With songs that owe as much to the Great American Songbook as to perennial favorites like Sade, Prefab Sprout and The Blue Nile, Krgovich has been creating a rich musical universe comprised of intricate vocal melodies, lush orchestral arrangements, layers of analog synths, slinky guitars and tight rhythms of the human (and inhuman) variety.

The Projection Room
Located upstairs in the former cinema’s projection booth, the new cocktail bar and late-night party space completes the cycle to launch The Fox Cabaret as a multi-room venue in Mount Pleasant. Operating as both a venue and a neighbourhood bar, the Fox will act as a cultural space for the best independent music, art, performance, and entertainment.
Designed by Scott Cohen and created in collaboration with Maya Beaudry, Graham Landin, Olivia Carmen Meek, and Marie-Helene Tessier, the space is unlike any other room in the city. Prepare yourself for leopard print walls (an homage to Dr and Lady Brute), gradients, a sparkly bar, pink mirrored tables, and beautiful pendant lights designed by Omer Arbel for Bocci.
