Born Ruffians+Winter Gloves+First Rate People
Tonight showcases three of Canada's jangliest and gangliest indie rockers. From Toronto, First Rate People will charm with their infectious sweep of Dirty Projectors-esque boy/girl harmonies, especially on their beloved single "Girls' Night." From Montreal, Winter Gloves up the tinkly glockenspiel whimsy, hand-clapping to their hearts' content on tracks such as "The Way to Celebrate." Lastly, Born Ruffians (originally from Midland, Ontario) speed through teenage anxiety with singer Luke LaLond's stammering yelp and discombobulated Talking Heads arrangements. Take the 20-year-old with a Tumblr nearest you.
