The Russian Futurists Toronto, ON March 12
The Russian Futurists are a quirky Toronto-based group that's been around for a long time but never really cracked into the next level. However, after they played most of their set as new songs, they showed that their next album, The Weights on the Wheels, might be a fun summer hit. Thanks to the beats, the group's music almost becomes club music, but in order to achieve that kind of energy completely, they need to loosen themselves up and have a bit more enjoyment with their songs onstage. A highlight was when Halifax-based singer Ruth Minnikin joined the Russian Futurists for a "sensual duet," which came out of nowhere but was hilarious.
