YLMC: Taylor Knox at the Dakota w/ Rex Boyfriend & Communism
We don't hide our affection for this east coast circa mid-nineties rock n' roll revivalist, and nor should you.
Thursday, February 27th
The Dakota Tavern
w/ guests Rex Boyfriend & Communism
10pm - Communism
Rheostatic/Canadian music legend Don Kerr brings his new project to the basement of the Dakota and provides a back beat that's more sturdy than the really big guy taking up the entire aisle on a crowded streetcar.
11pm - Taylor Knox - www.taylorknoxmusic.com
The man of the hour and his band, bringing a sound that is like a revisionist Thrush Hermit/Sloan circa-"One Chord to Another", blended with enough of his own unique vibes to keep it fressssh.
12am - Rex Boyfriend - http://churchoftheheartsonfire.bandcamp.com/
Rex is the sultry project of Matty Miller and features a band comprised of his old high school pals that have since gone on to play lots of music for some really great bands, including Neil Quin Zeus and Ian McDonnell Luke Bill. It has a very 'smoke joints and drink maple syrup by the fire' kinda vibe; a combination we can totally get behind.
