With synths that glitter sonically and a gold-speckled guitar that sparkles physically, VIL throbs with disco-mojo as quick and catchy as any of their Aussie dance club influences (Cut Copy, The Presets, Empire of the Sun).
The pair creates an aural electro-landscape coupled with the rollercoaster climaxes and troughs of a wicked rock show.
And it gets better. Headlining, Toronto’s Parallels brings a calming wave of tranquilizing dance-ambiance. Sway to and fro with Holly Dodson’s icy-sweet vocals and faultless drumming from Cameron Findlay (who used to keep the beat on tour with Crystal Castles). New wave love stays high as we roll into another century. Show starts at 9 p.m. with DJ-duo Rude Dudes and poppy-rockers Diamond Liars. 21+
