Charly Bliss spent a long time on the “bands I want to see” list before they became a band I’d seen. I loved their show at The RecRoom and was excited for this Horseshoe Tavern show.
In short, we got a fantastic Charly Bliss show. Highlights of the high-energy set were a cover of Cindy Lauper's "All Through the Night", a bunch of very cool sounding new songs and so many great tunes from the rest of the band's catalog, focused on their most recent full-length, Guppy.
You could feel the energy bouncing back and forth between the crowd down front and the band on stage; getting higher and higher and higher as the set went on. Sadly, it couldn't go on forever, although somehow I think we missed out on an encore tune.
I know I'm not alone when I say that I can't wait for the band to record and release new music, and for them to swing back through Toronto on tour.
Here's a bunch of tunes from the band's setlist:
