The Superstitions Toronto ON, March 11 to 14

The Pop Montreal showcase at the Silver Dollar belonged to the Superstitions. The crowd, which was reaching capacity by the time of their 11:00 set, responded well to the quartet's pop rock sound and singer Nyssa Rosaleen's powerful voice. And what is there to dislike? The songs are simple and the band know their way around a hook. Though they tread well-worn territory — their brand of garage-y rock peaked with the Posies — when done well live it's hard for even the most hardened music snob to have a bad night.
