London, England's Yuck is one of my favourite bands. The music they create, with it's grungy, grimy chords, cool melodic guitar hooks, great vocal melodies and driving beats is an elixir for my ears. It was two years ago, and very early on in my concert photography adventure, that I caught the band at The Garrison. I loved that show and I've been looking forward to seeing the band again ever since.
They recently released their newest album Stranger Things and of course they headed out on tour. They were here at Toronto's Silver Dollar Room on April 9. Their set spanned their 3-album discography and almost every one of my favourite Yuck songs. Hearing the magical noise the band creates in a club full of like-minded people is incredible. It lifts my heart and helps me face the world.
