Recording: Rookie Lights

Artist: Rookie Lights*

Song: O Canada

Recorded at The Garrison ("All Toronto's Parties"), November 22, 2013.

Rookie Lights - O Canada

Full review to follow. Toronto's DIY show promoters have generally been more mutual admirers than competitors, and now, this is the first flowering of a new commitment to work together. Wavelength, Weird Canada, Silent Shout, Feast in the East and Pleasence Records each picked an act for this joint show, which packed The Garrison with music and other diversions.

Befitting the momentousness of the event, the night started with the national anthem, sung in the contemporary style of slowing things down one thousand per cent.

* This combo's name could, in fact, be Rookie Light or Rookie Lite — this is what I heard from the stage. I'm note sure this is a band per se, as one source tells me they were found outside The Garrison before the gig, practising their harmonies on the sidewalk. Leave a comment if you know the proper moniker!
