Packed in the Global Village Backpackers at King and Spadina, despite the beer deal being Canadian, the band hushed the tight crowd with soft vocals, harmonizing violin and a commanding presence of Rasputina meets Forest City Lovers.
Having paid the extra dollar to drink something decent, the band had me insightful. Not only was I standing in a place where The Rolling Stones (who I love dearly) once hung out, but I was also witnessing the birth of a brand new musical love. Maybe it's my inner lez talking but I really see an amazing future for Paper Bag Palace.
