Who ever thought sine waves could sound so sexy? Hamilton's electronic duo Junior Boys have been touring, getting 9.0 reviews on Pitchfork and spitting out golden albums for years, and now they're getting it on at the Paragon. Saturday night the Boys are playing as celebrity DJs, rather than as a band, but either way they're sure to bring a set of dense, pulsing beats that your body will refuse to shake off afterwards.
Rounding out the night are two Halifax openers. BOTNEK will be wrestling over their turntable and building songs up like Jenga skyscrapers only to come crashing down inside the Paragon, covering you in electro-techno debris. And Jenocide throws Jen Clarke's haunting vocals and dynamic stage presence into the dance mix, adding hints of Peaches and MIA. to the party.
It'll be refreshing to let Junior Boys wild in our city. Log off your computer and go get shamelessly sweaty.
