Zaphod’s Welcomes Brendan Canning (photo essay)

by

On November 19th, Brendan Canning headlined a Saturday night show at Ottawa’s infamous nightclub Zaphod Beeblebrox. Recently releasing his album Home Wrecking Years, this third solo offering of the founding member of Broken Social Scene hit all the right notes with the crowd. Despite a broken guitar string at one point, the tunes flowed, rocked and, at times, got sweet and jammy. Finding your musical groove was an easy task when listening to this talented ensemble.

Supporting Brendan Canning included a double punch of acts. American Lips brought the heat to start off the triple bill. Comprised of Sebastien Grainger (of Death From Above 1979), Adrian Popovich (previously of Tricky Woo), and bassist Jessica Bruzzese, the trio grabbed the concert goers’ attention swiftly and kept it fixed for their set.

The Toronto-based quintet, Shy Kids, weren’t wallflowers by any means. Their matching brightly hued bowling shirts and bounce-about, pop-rock tunes made them fast friends with everyone.

A show well worth the price of admission, and then some. There’s only a couple of dates left on the tour. Get there if you can !
