SATURDAY — Canadian Music Week's Saturday night found us within the dark recesses of Tattoo on Queen West. And it was the surprise guest on the bill who might very well have been the highlight of the Universal Music showcase. Dear Rouge appeared out of nowhere. Frontwoman Danielle McTaggart tore threw a blistering set. She was hard to take your eyes off, glittering boots and disco pants taking us back to the raw days of 1970s rock 'n' roll, the stage engulfed in a swirl of smoke and bathed in colour.
