Land and sea

I decided to spend a low-key night at Zaphod's, so off into the cold (not too bad), and off to see Acres started things off. Last time I saw them at Zaphod's (an early show by them), they were quite impressive. No difference this time around.

Flotilla were a bit more twee - but then they have a harp, so it more or less goes with the territory. The Montreal band rounds out their interesting lineup with a singer-guitarist and a backing vocalist who played electronic drums with one hand (and foot) and a synthesizer with the other. They put me in mind of Julie Doiron.

Finally, The Soiree put on a short set of their moody roots-pop.

That was a nice night out.
