Toronto’s Austra.

Last Monday, I went to watch a YouTube video friend Davin had posted, and was greeted with a 15-second pre-roll ad for Austra’s new album. That 15 seconds was enough to hook me in.

By Tuesday, I had their album looping on YouTube.

Then, on Wednesday, I found out that they were playing at Sugar Nightclub that Saturday. So, I went!

Austra, live, sound just as vast as their album, and watching Katie Stelmanis’ graceful, emotive movements was very soothing.

And the vast array of personalities in the band were equally fun to watch.

T’was a pretty great first concert for my new 70D.
