I'm going to see Austra on Sept 24th, who wants to come with? Austra is a Canadian synth pop group, with the classically and operatically trained Katie Stelmanis at the helm. Her vocal style these days doesn't particularly sound much like opera, but it's distinctive and adds to the enchanting quality of their music.
As far as the songs go, check out the gothy banger "Beat and the Pulse," (http://youtu.be/khT-s-3E8Uw) the quirky pop of "Shoot the Water," (http://youtu.be/h8fHhv0aFaU) as well as the more recent, house music-inflected songs "Painful Like" (http://youtu.be/oZ_kSGXEfto) and "Home" (http://youtu.be/ODyWKkDBb4U) (one of my favorite songs so far this year).
The show is listed as starting at 8, which I think means doors at 8. Let's meet at Sunset Grill & Tap beforehand at 7:30, before making our way over.
DIANA are the openers, and tickets are $15, $18.50 with fees.
