!! OMG, photos: Kele live in Toronto !!

KELE-LEAD.jpg
The boys and girls in the front row at The Mod Club in Toronto last Friday couldn’t keep their hands off Kele Okereke, caressing and clinging to the Bloc Party frontman’s calves as he performed a 45-minute set of material mostly taken from his new solo album, The Boxer. It’s not hard to see why Kele inspires such amorous behavior among some of his fans: he’s clearly been spending time in the gym since releasing the solo record, and he knows his way around a heartbreaking ballad or two.
Though the set list leaned toward songs of the pop-dance variety, it was the belters — new and old — such as recent single “Everything You Wanted”, “Rise” and Bloc Party number “Blue Light” that really seemed to rile the crowd up. Photographer James was up front to capture all the skanking action. Check out a few photos and Kele’s remaining tour dates after the jump.

After four long years off the music scene the lads and lassies from beloved Scottish pop band Belle and Sebastian are back and they have a lot going on. Firstly, the band has made “Write About Love”, the lead single from their forthcoming album Belle and Sebastian Write About Love, available for free download for a limited time today. Cop it via this widget (in exchange for your email address):

Secondly, the band has produced a lively half-hour variety show featuring a chat, skits, performances of two new songs and a fan Q&A.

Belle and Sebastian Write About Love comes out on Oct. 12 in the United States via Matador Records (a day earlier in the UK). Check out the variety show and tour dates after the jump.

!! OMG, photos: Scissor Sisters live in Toronto !!

_MG_5494.jpg
Every gay tank top in Toronto was in attendance at the Scissor Sisters concert at Sound Academy this past Tuesday. The star of the show was easily frontman Jake Shears’ heaving, perfectly-sculpted bosom, framed by a red leather number and plunging acid-wash denim jumpsuit, which band mate Ana Matronic described as “a hillbilly version of The Warriors”.
In fact, Shears’ torso might’ve glistened a little too much, as the majority of the crowd seemed content to stand, feet firmly planted in place, apparently transfixed. Fortunately The Typical Tuesday Night in Toronto vibe failed to permeate the stage where the New York-based pop group tore through a lively 20-song set of their funked-up pop-rock tunes.
The setlist emphasized the darker pop sensibility and hyper-sexual tone emanating from the band’s recently-released third album Night Work. They played all but one of its tracks, as well as a selection of their earlier radio hits like “Take Your Mama”, “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin'” and “Filthy/Gorgeous”. Save for some of Ana Matronic’s zonked-out stage banter (at one point, out of nowhere, she earnestly urged everyone to get HIV tests, sending the audience into awkward silence), the Sisters’ were on-point, bringing their non-stop arena-sized energy to the mid-sized club.
Our man in the mosh pit James Lourenco was front and center to capture all the exposed man candy. Check out the photos, as well as the Sisters’ remaining tour dates, after the jump.

!! OMG, It’s Coming: Glee Season Two !!


Pssst, actually I secretly think Glee kind of sucks balls, but I know everyone else is all over it like Ellen on Portia’s poon, so maybe you would like to watch the new, just-released preview of it?
As for me, I’ll just be waiting for when they have the very special Taylor Dayne episode. Then I’ll consider reconsidering.
