Rah Rah North By Northeast Toronto ON June 11 to 15

There’s no doubt that Rah Rah are Canadian. Their beyond catchy but blunt rock songs were dressed with keyboards and violins, and in a very Weakerthans-esque manner they brought their awkward sing-along inducing live performance to a crowded audience at the Boat that couldn’t help but clap along! Bred in Regina, their songs (mostly about love) really had a sense of home weaved into them, for example, "It’s fashionable to be single in big cities, but in Regina, Saskatchewan I fell in love with her frown.” It leads me to believe in the near future we’ll be hearing a lot more from these prairie dwellers.
