FIDLAR And HSY Totally Destroyed Toronto’s Soybomb HQ

FIDLAR-1Tired of this freezing death spell called winter? Warm yourself up with a house show. After opening for the Pixies at Toronto’s ageless Massey Hall (it’s a 2753-capacity theatre), L.A. dudes FIDLAR coasted on over to Queen West to clink beers with HSY and rip out a late night gig at Soybomb HQ. To put it eloquently: it kicked ass. A large mob invaded Soybomb and in no time at all with no room to spare, the house/DIY space – that’s technically a half pipe – became a breeding ground for larger-than-life memories. Toronto’s HSY erupted with their tranquilized sludge hits (dig into “Tartar Mouth” here) while FIDLAR’s set was crammed with crowd favs, invisible pull-ups, and enough sweat to destroy the polar vortex. We’re still sore so a big thanks goes out to the organizers – VICE, Pistonhead, and Mark Pesci – and to the talented Amanda Fotes who managed to snap all of the photos you see here.

In case you don’t have them, HSY’s new EP can be grabbed via Buzz Records while FIDLAR’s S/T is out now on Dine Alone/Mom+ Pop Music
