Starring Janet Leigh Toronto, ON March 12
Set to soon release their latest record, hyperactive progressive death/hardcore brigade Starring Janet Leigh have been endlessly traipsing across North America in preliminary support. And performing constantly has only managed to create one powerful beast. The outfit have dialled in their performance to its highest setting, as this succinct yet brilliant show proved. Tight, energetic and refined, the band's engaging relay of catalogue and new tunes was spotless, commanding the attention of even typically unresponsive scenesters. From the frenetic headbanging to searing solos, Starring Janet Leigh established an impressively high bar for the showcase's ensuing bands to meet, let alone surpass.
