MATROX - Call Control

The first weekend after New Year's Eve is often a deadzone for gigs, a gap that Feast In The East has been filling for a couple years now. As the night's best gig in town, this drew a full room to the other side of the DVP, offering a very tasty Dutch meal and a quartet of bands you'd want to stand up and move a little to.

Just as Ford Prefect had mistakenly identified the dominant terran life form in choosing his earthly name, the alien robot visitors of MATROX seem to have identified the ubiquitous announcements on the TTC as the key avenue of communication between local earthfolk and their authorities. It seems a little strange (or frightening to consider they might be right), but how else was poor, lonely Bessarion going to get its moment of celebration in song?

[MATROX will be playing tonight (Thursday, January 22nd) at Debaser/Weird Canada's Come Up to My Room showcase at The Gladstone. The next Feast in the East, on Saturday, February 7th, is more of a mellow affair, but offers a no-less-impressive lineup including EONS, Matthew "Doc" Dunn, Jooj (Sook-Yin Lee & Adam Litovitz) and Alex Lukashevsky.]
