Montreal’s Dany Laj and the Looks have rung in the New Year, grabbed their parkas, and are once again ready to take Ontario by (snow) storm!

SATURDAY JAN 24: Lola’s (Cornwall ON)

HERO WORSHIP TRIP

DANY LAJ AND THE LOOKS HERO WORSHIP TRIP 2014

It was a grey, dismal afternoon in March of 2014 when Montreal’s Dany Laj and the Looks marched up to Moncton, New Brunswick’s abandoned and foreboding Castle Manor. Armed only with their instruments and the driving force of rock ‘n’ roll (and of course a couple of cameras to capture the monumental moment), the trio summoned the ghosts of the faded beauty, growing stronger and stronger with each successive note. The band’s dark powers reaching full strength, they forged on and continued to conquer Canada’s Maritimes. Upon returning home to Montreal, Dany Laj and the Looks devised a dastardly plot to fully utilize their newfound might, and so present Ontario with The Hero Worship Trip, in which audiences from Toronto to Sudbury will tremble and kneel at the frenzied power-pop force wrought forth by our beloved villains. Zounds!

April 23rd – Horseshoe Tavern  -Toronto On w/ Holly Golightly

April 24th – The Black Dog Pub  – Bayfield On

April 25th – The Clarkson Pub – Barrie On  w/ Ruby Valentina

SELL THE CASTLE

DANY LAJ AND THE LOOKS SELL THE CASTLE TOUR 2014

When Montreal’s Dany Laj and the Looks saw a real estate listing for a real, live castle for sale in Moncton, New Brunswick, they knew they had to seize the opportunity to see the thing for themselves – and what better occasion to plan their triumphant return to the Maritimes around? Yes, folks, Dany Laj and the Looks are happy to announce that they will be bringing their own memorable brand of ’70s/British-influenced rock’n’roll to East Coast Canada once again. Dany Laj has been tirelessly driving back and forth across Canada with his faithful band, The Looks, at his side.

SUPER FURRY PARTY

 

We just encountered our 5th trip to the east coast this year, and what a great time it was. Ya, we had a van breakdown, but we made it. We just keep pushing. This week we are heading to Toronto for the Out Of The Box Music Festival. We are playing on Friday night (August 23rd) at Handlebar in the infamous Kensington Market. We just finalized three dates that we’ll be doing in October with England’s The Luka State. Also coming up we have three shows in la belle province:  two of them with MTL’s newest garage/rock ‘n roll duo Kuhmfert. Also shows coming up in north Ontario.  I will leave you with some pics of the tour, upcoming shows and a video from Ottawa’s Beyond The Pale Brewery that features “Mr. Rebound” . Be sure to always check the “shows” section. – perhaps we’ll see ya down the road.
