Northern Lights


On their way back to Toronto from a North America tour that included eight shows at SXSW, I caught up with DD/MM/YYYY last night at Union Hall. A bunch of former art kids from Toronto, they played speedball math rock that sounded like Don Caballero spun through a blender - fitting given that they recently played a mess of dates backing Don Cab. Their singing might not be worth writing home about, but their manic energy more than made up for it. Highlight: some number about Mr. T Cereal that felt like a bad acid trip. Which means it was good. (More pics below.)
