last night i got to see one of my new favourite bands play at the wecc ~ Yukon Blonde. i’m so in love with their music; it pretty much helped me start every day on the right foot during the chaos that is the winnipeg fringe festival this past july. the first time i heard their single ‘Babies Don’t Like Blue Anymore’ on CBC Radio 2, i was hooked (take a listen here). sadly, i discovered them just after they’d been through my city on tour (/sadface). so needless to say when i heard they were touring again this fall, i snapped up tix immediately. they were awesome live.
they opened for the wooden sky and there was a band before as well, so their set was so short but so sweet too. they did however play my fave single from the album: Brides Song, so i’m a happy camper. i’m crossing my fingers for another YB stop in my fair city sometime soon… and hopefully this time they’ll be headlining – i need more YB! they just released a new video for Loyal Man. seriously, check these guys out!
