Deep Dark United Toronto, ON February 10

Those in the know realize words are feeble when describing what is possibly the most talented group of musical song experimenters on North American soil. Employing natural surround sound, the band had an organ playing at the rear with singer Alex Lukashevsky belting out "Dead Souls" alongside Ryan Driver on piano up front. Being out of practice barely showed beyond slight looseness, but the group did opt to play a great set of fan favourites in lieu of any new material. Deep Dark United demonstrated once again that they're a peerless group of sound artists who should be hailed as living legends.
