Toronto’s legendary Horseshoe Tavern will host indie rock act Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on Tuesday, March 7 at 8:30 p.m. with special guest Steady Holiday.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, which currently features Alec Ounsworth (guitar, vocals, synths, drum machine), released a brand new album titled The Tourist back on Feb. 24 via Undertow. The album, which is supported by the track “Fireproof,” is the project’s first album since 2014’s Only Run.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s sophomore full-length, Some Loud Thunder. The album, produced by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Thursday), was released in January 2007 through Wichita Recordings and v2 Records. Some Loud Thunder debuted at No. 47 on the Billboard 200 thanks to lead single “Satan Said Dance.”
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah previously operated as a band with Sean Greenhalgh (drums, percussion, synths), Robbie Guertin (keyboards, guitar, backing vocals), Lee Sargent (guitar, backing vocals), and Tyler Sargent (bass).
Also on the bill is Steady Holiday, the indie-pop solo project from Andrea “Dre” Babinski. The singer-songwriter, violinist, and guitarist released her debut, Under The Influence, in June 2016 via Brooklyn label Infinite Best. The LP, which was produced by Gus Seyffert (Beck, The Black Keys), features Josh Adams (Jenny Lewis) on drums. Under The Influence is supported by the lead single “Open Water” as well as earlier cuts “No Matter” and “When I See Color.”
Tickets, $21.50 CA, are available online. Advance tickets may also be purchased at Rotate This (186 Ossington Avenue) & Soundscapes (572 College Street). This event is strictly 19 and over. The legendary Horseshoe Tavern is located at 370 Queen Street West in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
