On Friday night I checked out Wintersleep at The Mod Club here in Toronto. Wow. Despite many/most of the ticket holders showing up after the mid-point of their set, Wintersleep put on a solid show that held our collective attention from the opening notes. (The tickets said “Doors At 8pm” which most people take to mean that the headliner will not be on stage until 10pm. This may be true sometimes, but the lesson from Fridays show is to not make assumptions. Fans showing up at 10pm only enjoyed 15 minutes of Wintersleep goodness as they went on at 9!)
Their current “single” was a real highlight for me, and seems to be gaining momentum as I heard it on Edge 102 a couple of times this weekend. Here’s the brand new video.
