Well I went to see Keane earlier this week at a small club in Toronto. The band performed a lot of the songs from their latest album ‘Under The Iron Sea’ and seemed to have ironed out any audio problems that some people had mentioned in earlier recent shows to promote the new cd. Highlights were the single ‘Is It Any Wonder?’ and ‘Crystal Ball’ as well as material from Hopes And Fears.

I decided it would be cool to be up in the front row, but occasionally got whipped in the face by Tom’s mic cord, and felt at times I was a bit too close. I did manage to video tape two songs on my digital camera, so if I can get them up on-line somewhere I’ll post a link. After the show the band were presented with platinum sales awards for their debut cd ‘Hopes And Fears’ at an industry meet and greet. Tom left quickly after the photos with Universal staff ended, Tim and Richard hung around for a little while.

This was the sixth time I have seen Keane and I was happy to get to see them back in a small club as I’m sure future shows will be in much larger venues. They do put on an energetic and sonically sound live show, so go see them if you get a chance.


I also had the pleasure of seeing new U.K. singer David Ford at a small club recently. He sounds quite a lot like Damien Rice and put on a very good one-man show. His new cd ‘I Sincerely Apologize For All The Trouble I’ve Caused’ just came out in Canada and I highly recommend it, especially if you’re into the the acoustic singer/songwriter thing. The good news is he is supposed to be coming back on tour in September, so go check him out if you haven’t already.
