Continuing with the incredible musical lineup to date, Panamania featured Arts & Crafts darlings Stars on Wednesday night. Torquil Campbell kicked off their performance with a personal dedication to Rob Ford, in time for the beautiful Amy Millan to saunter on stage and the gang was ready to roll. Stars electrified the crowd with their infectious energy (there was lots of jumping) and beautifully danceable hooks. Check out their extensive catalog at http://www.arts-crafts.ca/
Montreal surf rockers The Muscadettes played their second show ion Toronto at the Silver Dollar Room. Led by statuesque sisters Chantal and Kathleen Ambridge, The Muscadettes blast their way through California surf rock tinged with a hint of French flare. This was just their second Toronto show in as many years and after successful showcases at M for Montreal and Pop Montreal, they’ve been invited back to perform at CMF 2015. Stay tuned for details on their facebook page and get a taste for their sound with the videos below
Sam Roberts Band stopped by 102.1 The Edge studios in Toronto to promote their latest record “Lo-Fantasy”. The Canadian rockers performed an intimate set for a very lucky audience of about 100 listeners in a plush, cozy theatre, located at Corus Quay: Edge corporate headquarters. Performing cuts from the new album, some classics and engaging some revealing, awkward Q&A with the audience.
The guys couldn’t be any nicer or gracious to their fans and they sound great. The new record has a bit more soulful rhythm to it, honouring the soulful and blues roots of modern rock. Pick up a copy of Lo-Fantasy everywhere! Even their website!
