Royal Teeth were the big surprise to me as I hadn't heard much from them, but they have a single called "Wild" that is starting to get some buzz. It's a big song with nice male/female vocals and a singalong chorus that is so infectious that it will be on repeat for days follow.A six member band that includes both a male and female vocalist and drums all around for everyone! They kicked off a with boisterous song starter and had the crowd singing and dancing with them for the rest of their set.
The headline for the night was Young Empires, a 4-member band from Toronto that call their sound "haute rock" as they take elements of dance, rock and fashion and meld it into a sound that recalls both the groove of the Rapture and the pop hooks of the Killers. I spoke to Matt, the lead singer and synth player of the band about their tour before the show:
A big thanks goes out to 93.9 The River for bring the show our way and continuing to promote good new music.
Here are a few pics of Young Empires and the crowd (look close and you might even see me in a couple of them).
