Montréal's Young Galaxy are currently on tour supporting their latest full-length album Falsework (via Paperbag Records on October 30th, 2015). I had the chance to catch their Toronto date at The Mod Club where fans flocked to see frontwoman Catherine McCandless kill it on stage – especially with her dancing. Unfortunately, Catherine was fighting off a bad cold and nearly stopped the show as she told the fans that she's sorry and sounds horrible because of her cold. Fans cheered her on giving her the 'okay' to keep going. It was amazing to see such great support from her fans who wanted the band to continue even if she wasn't at the top of her game.
To myself and the fans, she still sounded great. I was just getting into the show when she stopped performing and contemplated ending the show early.
Young Galaxy performed a lot of new hits of Falsework, but also older tracks, which was great because I hadn't yet listened to the full album. I need to find the time to really listen to it and appreciate it.
Take a look at the concert photos from the show below:
