Honestly, with a name like Dinosaur Dinosaur, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this relatively new Toronto band. After listening to some of their demos, I was glad I had checked them out. The 3-piece likes to describe their sound as ‘post-shoegaze dancepunk’. To get a feel for what their talking about, grab the demo ‘Sum Of Tomorrow’s Parties’

. You can also head over to Myspace and check out some of their other recorded material. The band is currently in the process of recording a debut EP, which is expected to be completed some time this fall. Catch them live tonight, as they play Teranga in Kensington Market as part of the new Silent Shout night. Keep an eye on this band people, I expect big things to come. For more info and up-coming shows head over to their website.

    From a very proud dad who knows that his daughter is doing this from the heart and they will succeed, not becasue they are pushy, not because they will walk over other, but because they all like what they are doing, enjoy each others company and love entertaining their friends.

    Me, I am still locked in the 60′s, bring on the Beatles, Rolling Stones.
