BSS on stage

At one point they had a paltry 16 people on stage. And really? Only five guitars standard? Clearly they're becoming tame with their old age.

 

All kidding aside though, while BSS puts on an energetic show regularly, the way they played for the hometown crowd was a cut above. Tons of energy, Feist sang on a number of songs, even Emily Haines came out for a few (a wish of mine for most of their shows) and an entire backing horn section from The Toronto Revue. Especially fun was the fact that Toronto is locking down for the G20 next week and as it turns out a lot of Torontoans, Kevin Drew included, are none too happy about this.
