Au Revoir Simone :: Great Hall, Toronto 15 July 2010








Here's a good review of the Au Revoir Simone {MySpace Music} show over on Panicmanual.com {Hattip:: LinnyQat}. I didn't get there until right before Alexa Wilding's {MySpace Music} set, due to a recreational diversion through Trinity Bellwoods Park and an overreliance on Google maps {a search for "Great Hall Toronto" yields the correct address on 1087 Queen West, but the wrong location on the map}.

This was the first time I ever saw Au Revoir Simone, although I've been listening to them since 2006. The show was pretty tight and their music translates well live. While some might say their performance was rather wooden, I didn't seem to mind. Maybe it's the library chic look they're sporting. I wish my camera wasn't having difficulties, as I wish I could have shot their cover of Don Henley's "Boys of Summer".

Here's a few of my favourite songs of theirs, but, alas, I didn't keep track of the playlist.
