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.

Operators News!

Finally we have some more news on Dan Boeckner’s new project Operators. Looks like the band will be performing 3 shows in May for Canadian Music week in Toronto. Here’s more info from Exclaim.ca:

After making their live debut in the U.S. late last year, Dan Boeckner’s new Operators project has announced its first string of Canadian concerts.

A Facebook event page lists that the band, which also includes Boeckner’s Divine Fits bandmate Sam Brown and Devojka, will play a three-night stand at Toronto’s Silver Dollar Room from May 9 to 11. The dates will be presented during this year’s Canadian Music Week as part of the venue’s annual NeXT@CMW triple-header.

The Facebook page also notes that Boeckner is back in Montreal recording with the group. Stereogum, however, also reported in December that the trio had recorded an EP’s worth of material in Brown’s basement in Columbus, OH.

The Facebook event page states:

Boekner has returned to Montreal from California – w/ Divine Fits drummer Sam Brown (ex- New Bomb Turks) and the divine Devojka – to begin recording his next venture: OPERATORS.

So looks like Operators will have a record out this year!! Exciting! Really can’t wait to hear more news about this project.
