Zeus are on tour, bringing their unique sound to Lee’s Palace Nov 24th. They will hopefully be playing a good selection of tunes from their soon to be released (early 2012) sophomore as yet untitled album. We had a small tease of this with the single “Are You Gonna’ Waste My Time” released back in October on the Arts & Crafts label.
Returning as a supporting act, The Skeletones Four, who also opened the show the last time Zeus performed in Toronto at The Horseshoe Tavern, will get things going with their psych-prog-pop offerings.
Here is a small taste from the show at the Horseshoe last December.
I last saw Yukon Blonde down at the Horseshoe Tavern for a Nevado Records love fest and after looking at my pix from then, I wanted to try a few different things, and I liked their show.
Opener’s included Sandman Viper Command, followed by The Great Bloomers. Two solid bands, we’ll probably see more of them in the future. But this night was for Yukon Blonde. In the early stages of an epic tour , about 60 dates in all, promoting their latest release, an EP titled Fire//Water, they didn’t hold back right from the get-go.
Lot’s of antic’s and guest appearances from members of the Wooden Sky, the Paint Movement and the Great Bloomers gave this show a house party vibe, complete with paper confetti, glo-sticks and a birthday cake!
Special thanks to Lee’s Palace for the free pass to this show, I was gonna go anyway.
My full gallery from the show can be found on the gallery page. One of Yukon Blonde and one of the opening acts.
This picture of the Super Reverb amps gave a hint for what was to come later, a cover of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”.
