A Certain Symmetry Drop Teaser, Chaos at the 'Shoe


It's a lot of fun to watch a band get more and more popular, and I've been lucky to see Toronto's A Certain Symmetry do just that. In the two years they've been gigging around the city, they've headlined and opened dozens of shows, left screaming audiences in their wake, and earned quite a following in the process. As recently as three weeks ago they were featured in NOW Magazine as a pick of the NXNE festival.

Until now, though, fans haven't had anything other than great memories to bring home at the end of the night. That will finally change this Saturday at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern when A Certain Symmetry hand out a free copy of their new teaser CD to the first two-hundred people to show up. A pre-release to their first album, Pursuit, which is due later in the year, the EP features three songs that have become fan-favourites at shows over the past few years.

For those who have already seen the band, you know what you're in for: a Simon & Garfunkel meets the Weakerthans meets Mozart smorgasbard of aural pleasure. The new songs are previewable on the band's website, but anyone who has seen the band knows: they're best experienced live.
