In my experience, Canadian bands know how to rile up a crowd. Maybe it's the cold, but they tend to be good at keeping a room moving, dancing, drinking, and having a great time. Sam Roberts Band at Castaways this weekend was no exception.
While they're probably used to playing State Theater-esque venues back in Quebec, Roberts and his band took to the rickety stage at Castaways with gusto. I'm only really familiar with their album from this May, Collider, but there's definitely going some heavy rotation of their earlier stuff after this week's concert. With a voice a wee bit like Tom Petty and a band adept at impeccable rock 'n' roll, Sam Roberts stoked the crowd into a joyful fervor of roots rock-y goodness.
Also, wow he is good looking. Photos below if you don't believe me.
