Death From Above 1979 and The New Pornographers tore the roof off the old Sonic Boom location in the lower floor of Honest Ed’s on Friday. For the last show in Molson Canadian’s covert Altered States concert series, the venue was transformed from dusty record store to swanky concert spot in a matter of days.
New Pornographers opened the show with a lively powerhouse performance – a solid precursor to the night’s headliner. Things got just as riotous as expected when DFA took the stage. Blasting out tracks both old and new, the band quickly warped the room into an intoxicating orgy of sweat and screams. Check out photos from the explosive night below.
