The Kills – live at 102.1 The Edge studios

St. Paul & The Broken Bones – Lee’s Palace, Toronto

There’s not much I can say about St. Paul & The Broken Bones that hasn’t been said in every album and concert review already. Probably something about authentic soul, that Muscle Shoals mystique, the fact that they can pack houses across North America on the strength of…wait what’s that single that’s burning up radio? Oh that’s right. They’re not played on the radio. There just not marketable enough. So what the hell were the capacity crowd at Lee’s (600) doing sweating up a storm on a Sunday night? Enjoying an incredible band that is thriving by word of mouth of their phenomenal live performances and their debut record Half The City (Single Lock Records, 2014). Fuck the industry, music is where it’s at.

 

July Talk – Air Canada Centre, Toronto

Toronto powerhouse July Talk played a gig at a little venue on Bay Street. Opening for the phenomenal Alabama Shakes, July Talk kicked off a great night of music at the ol’ Air Canada Centre. I was super proud to see the kids up on the big stage, and as usual, they did not disappoint! After the initial awe and humility wore off, they kicked up the energy and took no prisoners! Fans are anxiously awaiting the follow up to their self-titled debut album (released on Sleepless Records, 2012) If you aren’t familiar with the record, correct yourself now.
