Love was in the air Wednesday night at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto, when Canada’s favourite couple Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland of Whitehorse took the stage.
Before you attend a Whitehorse show, there are a couple things you should keep in mind;
1. It will be cute as heck!
2. Get ready to dance your butt to some good tunes with an awesome looper pedal.
3. You will swoon to the sexy songs, even if you don’t want to.
Whitehorse started off the night playing tracks off their new record. Songs like ‘Baby what’s wrong?’, ‘Tame as the Wild Ones’, and ‘Sweet Disaster you get Older’. Then, in Whitehorse fashion, a cover of Beck’s ‘Go it Alone’ took over. Then – in the middle of the song – they brought out Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay of July Talk to finish the song!
Peter and Leah were not the only ones to share the stage with the great Whitehorse, no; they had more tricks up their sleeve…. They mentioned to the crowd, how special it was for them to be able to welcome anyone to join on stage, as they have never done it before. The night had acts like Tanya Tagaq and Luke’s very own father.
Whitehorse at The Danforth Music Hall was more than just a typical concert on hump day but a connection with the audience, a way of Luke and Melissa saying to them, ‘thank you for being awesome fans’. With one more trick up their sleeve, they invited a friend up, from the crowd, to help accompany them on guitar for their hit ‘downtown’. As the lights went on and the audience gathered to go home, the talk amongst everyone was simply ‘that was amazing’ and of course ‘we want more’.
