By: Cassandra Popescu

Who: Bad Girls, Fitness Club Fiasco, St. Andrews, Whale Eye
What: Bad Girls Youth Culture Release Show
Where: Adelaide Hall, Toronto
When: January 23, 2016

Toronto based trio Bad Girls teamed up with several other talented musicians to celebrate the release of their latest EP Youth Culture and to bring fans a night of diverse, entertaining music. Featuring everything from some acoustic folk, indie pop/rock, and the edgier elements of rock, this show had something for everyone.

Whale Eye opened the show with a soulful acoustic set full of mellow yet captivating music. With nothing but a guitar, a powerful voice, and lyrics that speak to the soul Whale Eye made it impossible to turn away from the stage as he performed his folksy tunes. Somehow walking the perfect line between quiet and collected, and bursting with subtle energy Whale Eye provides the perfect soundtrack for winding down and letting go of life’s troubles.

St. Andrews played next and turned up the tempo with their infectious brand of indie rock/pop. Bouncing bass lines, smooth vocals, and an abundance of energy is what makes this band so much fun to watch live. The group combines the classic elements of alternative music with the easy-going, ambient nature of contemporary indie to bring listeners the best of both worlds.

Fitness Club Fiasco hit the stage next and kept the energy going with undeniably catchy synth pop tunes. The group creates the perfect atmosphere for a live show with layered vocals, memorable hooks and beats that make you hit the dance floor. Bursting with energy on stage, Fitness Club Fiasco knows how to put on a show that accompanies their spirited, yet poignant music.

Bad Girls brought it back to classic punk rock as they closed the show with vivacious beats, quick and lively riffs, and heavy distortion. Adopting the grit we all know and love from garage rock, Bad Girls strips it down to the true elements of rock and roll. This group is not just about the raw authenticity in rock music, they make sure they do it right and I’m 100% into that. Make sure you take a listen to Youth Culture to hear what this band has to offer!
