Gig 48: Youth Group

Image hosted by
Youth Group @ The Drake Hotel
(1150 Queen St W - 416.531.5042)

Hailed from Austrailia, Youth Group has been under the stealth radar for quite some time. Bassist, Patrick Matthews, is also plays in a more popular band -- The Vines. The band's first Canadian debut at the beautiful Underground but it was not packed at all, not only it was an early show (Doors at 5pm) and i guess not too many people had heard of them before. Below was their setlist:
Skeleton Jar
Frank Stone
Someone Else's Dream
Lillian Lies
Baby Body
Piece of Wood

I enjoyed the set. Eileen said she wanted to punch out the leadsinger. haha! I thought he was alright, though i can see the potential of his voice being annoying, he had that Jesus & Mary Chain kinda look to him. I totally didn't realized it was Patrick from The Vines until someone pointed out to me later. It was funny that Amy and I were wearing the same Fred Perry zip-up (only difference in colour) and we were both carrying a canvas Dean & Deluca bag. After the gig, we all went to Lakeview Lunch (1132 Dundas W - 416.535.2828) for a malt-shake until Ren and Eileen headed off to see Oasis at the Molson Amphitheatre (909 Lakeshore Blvd. W - 416.260.5600).
