Yesterday was a pretty good one for Austra. Not only did the synth pop band send their debut album, Feel It Break, off into the world with a sold out hometown gig in Toronto, but JAY-Z TWEETED ABOUT THEM. (Does that count as a ‘co-sign’?)
Of course, we knew all about them waaaaay before Hova. And, of course, the best dressed photographer at the gig was omgblog.com sharpshooter Karen, who elbowed her way to the front of a packed Lee’s Palace to capture the band’s ringleader Katie Stelmanis as she rocked the mic in a pair of eye-catching geometric Patternity tights.
Check out the photos of Austra and opening act Trust after the jump!
