Broken Mascis Scene played Toronto
BROKEN MASCIS SCENE @ THE MOD CLUB, TORONTO
“…While there were surely some in attendance strictly on the basis of the BSS component of the lineup, the night was unmistakably J’s. Call them whatever you want – as far as I’m concerned, that was Dinosaur Jr up there. Kevin Drew often doubled J’s vocals but only occasionally took lead and if he never strapped the guitar on at all, you wouldn’t have noticed. Also onstage were Brendan Canning on bass and Bill Priddle on guitar and two drummers – BSS’s Justin Peroff and Mascis’ Fog bandmate George Berz. Rather than take the dueling percussionist route, Peroff and Berz played pretty much the same thing beat for beat – probably unnecessary but they were so tight that it became that much more impactful. And in very un-Broken Social fasion, guests were kept to a minimum. Charles Spearin and Ohad Benchetrit added trumpet and flute to ‘Thumb’ (probably added to the set just to get trumpet and flute in there) and Feist came out for chorus vocals on set-closer ‘Get Me’….” [that & more @ Chromewaves]

Tokyo Police club apparently opened, but I was next door at friends house drinking.”
