Yuck make a joyous noise at The Garrison

It was a relatively warm January 17 in Toronto when I ventured down to my first ever show at The Garrison. Yuck from the UK were the headliners. I have loved this band's music since the first time I heard their grunge influenced tunes on their début and I've been quite certain that they would shine in a live environment. Let me tell you, they do not disappoint.
If you know about this band at all you know that they've gone through some change over the past while with the departure of their lead singer, their guitarist stepping up to fill that spot and the addition of a second guitar player. In the midst of all that upheaval, they managed to release a new album. A great one at that.
Their setlist started off strong with some of my favourites including "Middle Sea" and "Holing Out". They also hit up "Get Away", "Rebirth", their cover of New Order's "Age of Consent" and many more from across both Yuck and Glow & Behold before closing the main set with "Operation". After a short break they returned to the stage for an encore of "Memorial Fields" and "Georgia".

Awesome stuff! I'm so glad I made it out to the show.
Here are some tunes:

"Middle Sea" from Glow & Behold

"Holing Out" from Yuck

And here's the new tune "Athena" from their forthcoming EP Southern Skies. Busy guys!
