The band’s music can be described an a mix of synth-pop and rock ’n’ roll. The band played many of the songs off its first album, "A Thing Called Divine Fits," set to be released Aug. 28.

Opening was Austra, a Toronto trio of vocalist and multi-intrumentalist Katie Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski and bassist Dorian Wolf.

Coming up » Next week’s concert features Iron & Wine, with singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards opening. The series’ last concert is Aug. 30, with Common and Aloe Blacc. Tickets are $5 for all shows, available in advance at Graywhale Entertainment stores or at the gate.
