Summer may not be here officially, but it certainly feels like it with patios opening up near and far (to sat nothing of the mercury soaring to 31 degrees this weekend). While not as toasty as this Saturday is intending to be, it was till warm enough for Mugshots to open up its courtyard to a trio of fine bands, curated by Fryquency (that is, Debaser, Weird Canada, CKCU, CHUO and all the usual suspects). Bands came from west and east to strut their stuff, starting with Halifax-by-way-of-Toronto's Baby Cages.
Halloway Jones sings! The duo is usually her and Jeremy Costello, but on this occasion she was accompanied by a lady violinist.
Some less flashy singing.
The whole lot!
The shouty bit!
On to another duo, Eraserheads, featuring Alex Seguin, Omar Rivero and some uncooperative electronics. The crowd was enthusiastic about all three bands on the bill, but I'd say Eraserheads had them bopping the most with their twisty electro-rock.
They had some cool projections, which unfortunately don't show up well with flash.
Fever Feels were an excellent capper to the evening. The Calgary band was formed by brothers Logan and Landon Gabert, swollen to a quartet for live shows. They've got a retro feel thanks to the organ and a bit of swing to them as well.
Thomas Platt works the organ.
The whole lot!
Brotherly action (I believe that's Logan on guitar and Landon on bass, but it could be the other way around ...).
