Montreal's Sam Roberts Band kicked off their US tour behind Love At The End Of The World at SPACE Gallery this week.

The straight-up rock band's pairing with the super pop of tourmates Mother Mother seemed at first like an odd combination, but in the end it all worked out very well? The secret? Get the crowd dancing, and keep them dancing. That's just how it went - not to mention that the bands trasformed our humble stage into something much bigger (literally, they extended it!) with intense sound and lighting just for the show.

Local openers Dominic And The Lucid did a great job starting the night off, even in the confines of a crowded stage full of equipment. From the sounds of things it wouldn't be surprising if they were on a national tour of their own with a similarly intense setup before long.
