Black cat bones

Brooklyn noise-poppers Japanther are on tour with Against Me! right now, but because they're cool guys they decided to drop in for an in-store appearance at Sounds Unlikely yesterday afternoon. They had to be in Toronto for a show at Sneaky Dee's that night, so they unloaded there gear around 2 p.m. and were rocking out a quarter-hour later for a fairly full house (granted, SU's not that big). Bassist Matt Reilly and drummer Ian Vanek keep it lo-fi with lots of fuzz and samples galore.

I really wish I could have stuck around to the end, but I had to be off to work by 3 p.m. I'll have to catch them next time they pass on through. As for the tour, they're in London tonight at Cowboys, then head west.
  • Show reminder: Darrelle London plays sweet piano pop; she's at the Rainbow tonight with Zach Smith (I'm guessing he's not the new Senators centre).

So much fun (though I'm not sure how Ian Vanek got so sweaty before they even started...). Can't wait for the rest of the pics!
