GOING LIVE: Cults, No Joy
CULTS, NO JOY, SPECTRALS
PHOENIX CONCERT THEATRE, TORONTO / APR. 25TH
Even with their remarkable debut having been released almost a year ago, New York indie poppers CULTS still carry this impressive ability to make their sound detonate. Continuing their path to play every stage in Toronto, the quintet rattled the Phoenix Concert Theatre with enough tunes to keep dance moves alive while their sidekicks – NO JOY and SPECTRALS – kicked up some dust with rippling guitar noise (Montreal shoegaze can be described in one word: deadly). It may not have been as intimate as their set at The Horseshoe Tavern last year, but as one audience member admitted, “Cults have some serious swagger, man. They’re unstoppable”.
