Handsome Furs Toronto ON June 7 to 9
Published Jun 21, 2007Showing who the genius behind Wolf Parade’s lauded success really is, Dan Boeckner and his fiancée Alexei Perry kept the Comfort Zone crowd enraptured, packed like sardines in a boozeless speakeasy. Boeckner showed off some of his sweet, countrified riffage atop pre-programmed beats you would assume was a real drummer if you hadn’t seen it live. Sometimes Perry made you wonder what she was actually doing on her mini-Korg, and if she really has an important part in this band; she is a poet but she just can’t sing. Still, this is easily a project deserving of more than just second bill on anyone’s résumé.
