I spent most of my Wednesday night at The Rivoli because I was waiting for the buzzed about Mozart’s Sister.
Opening the night was Toronto prog rockers Human Bodies. Lead singer roles were switched between a male and female member. Their vocals had a unique purposely off-key kind of feel.
Heaven dropped off the bill due to travel problems and Alright Alright took the last minute spot. Unfortunately they did not even live up to their name.
Next up was Camera who came all the way from Wales to grace us with some guitar heavy rock. The audience swayed to their bursts of noise and occasional hook lyric. The members of the band were really nice and even hooked us up with a copy of their latest record For When You wake.
Mozart’s Sister filled the Rivoli room with her synth pop. On stage they performed as a duo but Caila remained the centre of attention most of the time. She’s sort of like Grimes but in a much different kind of awkward way. But if her funny dance moves can get the audience going than she did something right.
Before heading off, I caught a glimps of Gentleman Reg’s low key set. It was a lot more intimate than I had expected from such a known name in the city.
