Snowblink with Eons
The Cannery Art Centre
Thursday, March 17, 2011
While the downtown core rocked with wild St. Patrick's Day revellers, there was a lovely respite of subdued rock and roll to be found at The Cannery. Two bands shared the stage for some inspiring
music. First up was new, Toronto-based outfit Eons (pictured at left), a splinter band of Bruce Peninsula. This three piece managed to evoke the best of British traditional with a modern pop sheen.
Headliners Snowblink, a two guitar attack, also from Toronto, though transplanted from Los Angeles, married layers of guitar and two part harmonies into a fit of bright rock and roll goodness. This band is on the brink of a run of North American shows supporting Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and Toronto indie darling Timber Timbre.
With a backdrop of wildly dressed bar-hoppers and periodic lightening shows, this was a night to remember.
