Last Night: Handsome Furs @ the Oxford Art Factory

I admit that it’s been a while between gigs but what a way to get straight back into it. Montreal’s Handsome Furs greeted Sydney last night and what a powerful duo they are.

Opening with “Legal Tender”, the husband/wife duo of Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry showed no reserve and got straight to business. In between tunes, light banter provided joy for the many in attendance. What was present last night were two equal bodies sharing the one stage and making for one explosive and powerful (nearly intimidating) set. The Handsome Furs exhausted all energy into a short set and this was always going to be the pivotal. Their set was far from mess, if anything it was well controlled.

With the set mainly from Face Control, “Evangeline” and “I’m Confused” were the clear highlights. As they closed their set, I admired Boeckner and Perry for their undying affection for each other as they shared a tender moment on stage. This was a show for the romantics.
