Dragonette with Gibbz
8pm doors || $20 advance || All ages, bar with ID
It’s been two years since Toronto-based leftfield popsters Dragonette put out a full-length album – an eternity in Pop years. Though they’ve hardly been idle in that time.
The touring around 2012 LP “Bodyparts,” coupled with their smash collaborations with French DJ Martin Solveig, saw them almost constantly continent-hopping, sometimes swinging from Paris to Manila in a single weekend.
They did tours of the US with Major Lazer, Miike Snow and the Presets, played to a packed mid-day tent at Coachella, graced festival stages on five continents, and saw more of their native Canada than they had in their now decade-long history as a band.
