SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Phèdre, Monarch, 10pm
Phèdre emerged on the Canadian scene two years ago with a self-titled debut album, and wasted no time following it up with last year’s “Golden Age,” which was written and recorded during a six-week stint in Berlin. Composed of core members Daniel Lee and April Aliermo, the band insists it’s flexible with its membership, a trait that also carries over to the music, which tends to defy any one musical genre.
Asked to describe the music, Lee said that “Phèdre is a rotten, decadent fantasyland for us to live out our dreams in, and travel the world.” Intrigued? The band is particularly known for its dramatic, colorful, and unexpected live shows, so don’t miss your chance to see and hear for yourself. Natalye Childress
