Published Jan 27, 2012This week we have some incredible live performances from an array of artists on Exclaim! TV, including Los Campesinos!, Said the Whale, the Knocks and the Vibonics.
Kicking it off with a bang is Los Campesinos! playing some songs for us before their second consecutive night at Lee's Palace in Toronto. Performing the first two songs off their new album Hello Sadness, "Songs About Your Girlfriend" and "By Your Hand," the band give a really great-sounding set and prove just why they were recently in the T-dot for two nights of shows.
Next up is the Juno Award-winning group Said the Whale, who played an amazing stripped-down set, performing "Lover/Friend" and "Lucky" at the Tranzac in Toronto. And then we have rap rock locals the Vibonics. This band are proof of Toronto's diversely talented music scene, and you can check them out performing their songs "Flop" and "Blah Blah Blah" in the comfort of their jam space.
Finally, we have New York City-based dance music duo the Knocks. You can watch them as they sit down with Exclaim! TV to discuss the electronic music scene in Canada. They also go on to play their new single "Brightside" live at the Hoxton in Toronto. Watch the interview and performance here.
We have more great artists coming up next week, including Bahamas and Lake Forest, so make sure to keep checking in on Exclaim! TV. And keep your eyes peeled for future instalments featuring John K. Samson, Bidiniband and more.
