Last night I saw Broken Social Scene. It was greater then my imagination could imagine! None of the ladies were there, but they were still super rad. The set list was perfection and there was so many surprises!!
Brendan Canning comes out wearing a gold sequined track suit and the band plays an unknown to me song while he sings and has back up dancers.
The singer from Modest Mouse, Isaac Brock, comes out of no where and sings Superconnected with the band and then BSS go on to play Paper Thin Walls, a Modest Mouse song with Isaac Brock! Kevin Drew was so stoked he blew his voice singing Superconnected and was all worried the rest of the show that he sucked (he didn't).
Balloon Drop. What more can I say? I love them.
Back to the details. Even though the ladies (Emily Haines, Feist, Amy Millan) were not there, they had Elizabeth Powell from Land of Talk, their opening act, doing the female vocals, along with another unknown lady who came out to do harmonies. When those two got together for Anthems for a 17 Year Old Girl it was magical. The band also did songs off of their side projects which was sweet. As for the entire band, I'm not even sure who all was there because the stage was so jam packed!! Obviously the core members, Jason Collette, Kevin Drew, and Brendan Canning, as well as Justin Peroff, Andrew Whiteman, Sam Goldberg, and Elizabeth Powell. There may have been more people, but from my research that is a list of most of the main members that appeared on stage.
