Published Sep 11, 2012Earlier this year, genre-crossing Toronto rock band the Darcys released Aja, their reworking of Steely Dan's classic 1977 album. This fall, the group will be promoting it by performing the collection in full on a brief tour of North America.
The short jaunt includes five shows at the beginning of November. The first three of these are in the U.S., with the final two taking place in Ottawa and Toronto. According to a press release, "These shows will be carefully curated multimedia experiences, during which the band will both sonically and visually represent its controversial version."
Prior to the Aja tour, the Darcys will play a few dates in Australia and appear at Pop Montreal. Check out the full schedule below. Scroll past that to stream Aja in full or download it for free from the Darcys' website.
