Operators were on fire last week! Chart Attack ranked them as one of the top bands at the CMW festival, second only to Television! The Toronto shows were followed by equally amazing sets in Montreal and Columbus. It’s looking real good for Operators right now. So excited for what comes next!

Last night was epic! So much excitement and nervous energy all culminated in a dizzying set. Operators killed it. Incredible 45 minute set of epic dance rock jams. With a sweet surprise at the end. Dave and Brian (aka Japandroids) plus Dustin Hawthorne (ex Hot Hot Heat) got on stage with Dan and Davojka to do their version of one of my favorite Wolf Parade songs, This Hears on Fire. Check the video below and links to glowing reviews of the show.
Operators play tonight and tomorrow at The Silver Dollar before heading to Montreal on Sunday to play Il Motore.
