It's been awhile since The Friendly Dimension let us into their swirling and dangerous psychic day-mares. Their last show was nearly six months ago at Pop Montreal (pictured.) Singer Matt Samways says it's because the band - which includes Troy Richter and Rob Drisdelle - was hunkering down to focus on school. They return triumphantly this evening with a new cassette (put out by Kraft Singles, which boasts one of the most delightfully interactive website designs I've seen in awhile) to play a free early show at Lost and Found. The threesome will also be joined by Josh Salter and Craig Currie for the show, and the lineup includes Torso and Lashes, as well as DJing from Samways and Ian Phillips.
Samways says the band will be focusing on the "construction and production of "our dream sound" so you can expect more output from them sooner rather than later. I love listening to live music experimentation in this space, and I especially love the idea of these Friday early shows continuing at Lost and Found, especially at a time when this city is hurting more than ever for venues, so I'd encourage you to take a little dip into the far side this evening before you hunker down into the taxing business of drinking and other ribald behaviours.
