There are so many bands com­ing out of Canada th­ese days that we all might as well give up, pack up and move over there. Les­lie Feist is one of the many artists who have crossed The Ticket’s path in the past two years. She started off in a Cana­dian punk band called Placebo (not the US/UK punk/goth/glam act) and then played in a suc­ces­sion of bands (in­clud­ing By Divine Right and Peaches) un­til Bro­ken So­cial Scene took her fancy.

Since then, it’s been Juno awards, adu­la­tion from indie-rock crowds from Cal­gary to Clogher­head, and the kind of ku­dos that many other acts would trade their copy­rights for.

We prob­a­bly won’t be hear­ing any of BSS’s ma­te­rial tonight, but that’s okay as Feist is no slouch in the solo ma­te­rial de­part­ment, as her dis­tinc­tive solo works, Monarch (Lay Down Your Jew­elled Head), Let it Die, Open Sea­son and The Re­minder, show. (NB At time of go­ing to press we have just learned that this con­cert is sold out.) TONY CLAY­TON-LEA Can’T see ThaT? CaTch This Pa­trick Wat­son, Sugar Club, Dublin (Satur­day)
