Lit by scattered lamps and mini-lights draped about the stage, Ohbijou at St. Matthew’s Church were a perfect remedy for chilly night. Leading lady Casey Mecija’s voice absolutely filled the church. The downside to this was the silence of an enrapt crowd, which made Mecija nervous during her constant tuning changes after each song making the task take longer. When someone shouted ‘Wooo’ Medija gave a heartfelt thank you into the mic. Another highlight was Mecija describing her first walk in Toronto down Queen Street and being flashed, screaming and running to the nearest payphone. Then she flubbed, “of course I see them [male genitals] all the time now,” before laughing and launching into Thunderlove.
