Yellow Jacket Avenger and Fall Horsie in Montreal: Oct. 5th 2013

Yellowjacket Avenger will be performing in Montreal on Saturday, Oct 5th, at 80 St.Viateur East, along with Fall Horsie. Fall Horsie are (I’ve just learned) a quartet led by Justin Karas that performs a sort of chamber-pop with both ragtime and symphonic elements; they remind me of bits of Sufjan Stevens and Toronto’s  Jack Breakfast, and I imagine the pairing of acts will be righteous. We await announcements of more shows.

Hear Fall Horsie here at their MySpace page, and read a CBC profile here.
