If I ever hurt you it will be in self-defence.


"This one goes out to the guy who puked in the guys' sink" mentioned Sunset Rubdown keyboardist/guitarist/singer, Spencer Krug before commencing an up-tempo rendition of "For The Pier (And Dead Shimmering)". I've been a steady Wolf Parade fan for a couple years, but Sunset Rubdown have completely won me over. These guys, along with Magic Weapon (Sunset Rubdown drummer and Matt Shane of Think About Life) and Johnny and The Moon (aka other Wolf Parade sidedish who aparently played their last show here in Victoria, BC), got the bros hollering at Logan's last Friday night. "The Mending of the Gown" they wanted, but instead we were treated to a mixed set of old and new, mostly of songs I didn't expect us to hear but enjoyed nonetheless. Sunset Rubdown closed their set, insistent on a no-encore policy, with an impassioned "The Empty Threats of Little Lord" which had people professing to that snake all the way home. This was my first Sunset Rubdown show and I couldn't have walked away happier...though a few of my favourites were left out (probably because a couple bros killed that dream.)

You always hear about it, but never think that you will be the victim of bro rape.
