As you are aware during the Easter Week we went to Toronto for CMW. Canadian Music Week where you will find the best live music. The city is booming with musicians, industry folks and fans. The Honest Heart Collective had a Showcase at Adelaide Hall to open the week. As a special bonus they played with Silver Love Club from Australia and Texas King from London Ontario.
Silver Love Club
Silver Love Club, formerly Mabel The Band, was a group we meet last year. To quote the band: Four best mates from Sydney who play classic indie rock ’n’ roll. Tunes are dirty, loud and every gig is a goddamn party! Silver Love Club write 60’s pop songs, decades too late then smash them with classic indie garage sounds.
I love their descriptor on facebook : Neel is a filthy passionate mess of sound that makes loud noises by hitting things with the conviction of a preacher. A melodic flair in a bass player in a rare and beautiful gift which Alvin commands with thumping subs, a 70’s aesthetic & hooky inflections. Romeo, the strong yet silent member of the band, constructs a rowdy driving wall of fuzzed up guitars with a zero fucks given attitude. Mike is manic, unapologetic and delivers restless melodic charm, through crunched 60’s drive, with the grace of an undisciplined child.
Texas King is relentless and a force of nature expressed through their soulful sounds. Their accomplishments are impressive, and I am expecting big things from these guys.
Needless to say we had an amazing time in Toronto, loved spending time with all three bands and cannot wait to see what their futures hold.
Well no time for a photo shoot but I did have Kent snap a few at the end of the night. I cannot go to a show without wearing my THHC Tank. It was darn cold in TO on the 18th so a sweater and moto were both required. A timmy’s tea on the way back to the hotel was also a must.
and yes the earrings are in fact Keyboards.
