This Saturday (26 April) Julie Doiron is gracing the Grad Club stage. You know and love her and I’m not going to be talking about her today. What I want to do is suggest that you get to the show early to check out the opening band, The Coast. While the logic of the pairing doesn’t really make sense to me – The Coast’s Brit-poppy, post-punk inspired tunes don’t really seem like an obvious match for Doiron’s intimate songs – that is really beside the point. The Coast offer up music that is textured, melodic and hooky. The people who are supposed to know these sorts of things have tipped The Coast off as a band to watch this year, so why don’t you come out and see for yourself?
