The Beat Club

Finally heard Lucas Stagg and his pocket-battleship of a band (The Beat Club) yesterday.

I will not dwell on how they effortlessly handed me my overwhelmed, wanna-be-dancing butt all night, and instead will note how i am running out of superlatives for Toronto's popular (nowhere near popular enough -- and that's on us to right) musicians.

Their spontaneous velocity, razor-sharp playfulness, the sheer excellence of that 3-man band, blew me repeatedly out of the water. I barely made it home. ALL GOOD.
