The Arkells played the best, and most under-attended show I've seen this year. Despite the fact that their crowd consisted of about 20 people (ten, just there for the bar) The Arkells proved with a vengance that yes, Canadians can rock.
Having toured almost constantly for the past five years, I guess it should come as no surprise that their show was tight and musically impeccable. They're one of those few bands that can sound perfectly harnessed andin-control, while actually teetering on the edge of rock mayhem. I remember seeing them several years ago opening for Metric, and their set has only improved.
I only wish more people had been there, it does feel awkward dancing alone with a heavy camera as my only partner. Join me next time?
