Artist: Jef Barbara

Recorded at The Garrison, November 6, 2013.

Jef Barbara - Wild Boys

Full review to follow. Opening for Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, Jef Barbara brought a different Montréal flavour to his set. Dressed in a head-to-toe sequined bodysuit, he was something like a human disco ball (albeit one with lithe dance moves) at the centre of the stage. This song is not a Duran Duran cover, but some of the same dance/glam pop sensibility is embedded in its DNA. I'd missed out on seeing him previously, with his new album Soft To The Touch just out, I'm sure he'll be having his own show here sooner rather than later. As this extended-groovin' set-closer shows, this stuff works rather well in a live setting.
