Gig/Concert: Indie Week 2010 – Day One
Venue: The Hideout and Bovine Sex Club, Toronto, Canada
Date: 13 October 2010
In one word: Explosive

Indie Week 2010 kicked off on a wet and wild Wednesday night in Toronto – but a wee bit of rain was not going to spoil anyone’s fun. We were at the festival headquarters at The Hideout, and also the Bovine, for all the opening night action being delivered by an eclectic mix of exciting international indie artists.

It was a brilliant opening night and the quality of all the artists was impressive. First day highlights included Poland’s L. Stadt who were emphatic and had girls and boys grooving to their sound, the absorbing lo-fi thump delivered by a girl, a bass guitar and a laptop of Los Angeles’ Gardening, Not Architecture and the fantastic Athens’ europop band Berlin Brides kick it with Greco-Deutsch europop kitsch. They’re the processed cheese in my Kraftwerk dinner!

Full reviews of day one at Indie Week to come later. Keep your browser pointed to double-ya double-ya double-ya dot all this week and next for reviews, photos and interviews from Indie Week 2010. And Toronto, get there out and enjoy some amazing music – Long Live Indie!!
