Lorde Awesome - [excerpt]

Once more, Tad Michalak's Burn Down the Capital brought a full day's worth of entertainment to the concrete canyon of Yonge-Dundas Square. Random passers-by would occasionally stop and regard the proceedings with curiosity, bemusement or disdain while in the background the thrum of the busker's amplification outside Eaton Centre seems to grow louder every year, sharing the sonic space with sirens and engine roars. Starting the day was a rare field trip for this east-end drone collective, who have been holding down a monthly residency at the Only Café for the past 8+ years under the guidance of Avery Strok. Playing seven deep at one of the side-stage zones on the floor of the square, the group shored up their sonic ramparts with plenty synth textures, sax diversions, and occasional theremin.

[You can always catch Lorde Awesome at The Only Café – just around the corner from Donlands Station — on the first Thursday of the month, so keep an eye out for the next one will on November 7th.]
