Aside from their mildly annoying moniker (seriously, bands, has every possible name been snatched up? Must we resort to acronyms and punctuation?), Toronto's DD/MM/YYYY, pronounced "Day Month Year," should fit in nicely with this bill of local freak-rockers. Their herky-jerky style of electro-tinged, hyper indie rock will be a welcome hump day pick-me-up. And if they get bored backstage, they can spend their time comparing notes with fellow frenetic pop weirdos Marvelle, a spastic electric violin-fronted band who should provide a good warm-up to DD/MM/YYYY's unique and giddy sound. With the Central Division, and Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles. 21+.
