The boisterous six-piece party DONLANDS AND MORTIMER are considerably more exciting than the non-descript east-end intersection they’re named after. Ridiculously talented and good looking, both guitarist Carmen Elle and drummer Steven Foster have plenty of stage charisma to burn; they trade off lead vocals and own the stage as if it were their birthright. The rest of the band are no slackers either — including a tight horn section — but there’s a clear sense that this is more of a group of friends than a real band.
Tonight, join the band as they celebrate the release of their long awaited new album.
Special guests are songwriter ALEX LUKASHEVSKY (formerly of locals Deep Dark United), and TASSEOMANCY (formerly known as Ghost Bees) are Canadian twins Sari and Romy Lightman who have found a heavier, more ambient sound, ripe with dreamy, dissonant vocals, influenced by eastern song, drone music, phonography and myth.
