The Darcys North By Northeast Toronto ON June 11 to 15

The Darcys gave everything they had to the packed sweaty room. Dressed in their usual stage attire of mix-matched suits and ties, they unleashed their hectic post-rock cacophony upon listeners that looked as if they weren’t ready for it. Soon everyone slid into the noise that bounced off the walls and started dancing to indie pop masterpieces like "I Am Ship” and "Obvious Ones.” The crowd begged for "one more song” from the Toronto-by-way-of-Halifax quintet, so they whipped out their incredible cover of Final Fantasy’s "The CN Tower Belongs to the Dead,” which was transformed into a guitar-driven anthem every person in the room could shout along to.
