Conroller. Controller Montreal QC September 25 to 28

Their post-punk death disco sound might be the current trend, but this Toronto quintet has it nailed with the help of sexy singer Nirmala Basnayake, whose gleefully unpretentious vogue-ish dance moves inspired the crowd and equally dapper guitarist Scott Kaija, whose energetic bounce didn’t distract him from him locking grooves with co-rhythm guitarist Colwyn Llewellyn-Thomas. The only time they looked uncomfortable was when glaring white lights invaded their blood-red backdrop. This is music better bathed in mystery.
