More Canadians: Do Make Say Think and Apostle Of Hustle @ Mezzanine In November

If you read here regularly, you may be getting the idea that I have some kind of strange obsession with the various offspring of Broken Social Scene, and I guess you'd be right. Along those lines, I was excited to discover that Apostle Of Hustle will be opening for Do Make Say Think on November 3rd at Mezzanine!

The former is the side project of BSS guitarist and vocalist Andrew Whiteman. The band offers a bit of BSS flavor, but focuses more on rhythmic diversity, Latin guitars, and a less "poppy" feel, in general. I saw them open for Andrew Bird at the Fillmore, and they really delivered a fantastic set. The latter is a band having no relation to BSS (aside from also being natives of Toronto), but definitely riding a wave of critical praise. I've never seen DMST live, but their sound seems to involve a lot of the atmosphere and diverse instrumentation of Apostle Of Hustle, offering and even more "post-rock" repertoire. If you're feeling the atmospheric instrumental vibe, one would imagine it'll all work out to be a great show!
