Dragonette kick off “Royal Blues” tour (photo essay)

by

November is a big month for Canadian electro-pop band Dragonette, who have not only become one of Canada’s marquee groups but internationally their star has also been quickly rising. The group kicked off their North American tour last week while simultaneously releasing their fourth album, Royal Blues. Their tour sees the Toronto-based trio surprisingly playing in smaller, more intimate venues, including Ottawa’s The Bourbon Room.

There is a genius behind their madness, as the intimacy created the feel of a bomb that was about to combust. Fans were treated to a mix of new material from Royal Blues, older favourites, plus versions of their collaborations, such as “Hello” and “Outlines”. Frontwoman Martina Sorbara‘s energy was infectious, as she had the crowd waving their arms, dancing, and singing along For the encore, the crowd was more than happy to be split into groups to help out with the refrain for “Stupid Grin”, which is how to describe the soldout crowd’s face when leaving The Bourbon Room.

The tour includes 23 dates throughout Canada and the USA. If there is a show near you, make sure to get yourself to the venue. If you do attend, be prepared to let go, move your feet, and get sweaty from Dragonette’s brand of energetic pop music.

Dragonette is supported by Lowell on the Canadian dates. Although Lowell joked that many people had probably never heard her before, it was the 4th time for this lucky reviewer. It all started back at The House of Targ. She’s currently working on her sophomore album, which we are highly anticipating.
