On Sunday, Oct. 4, the Canopy Club brings Australian indie-rock success Youth Group to the stage. The catchy four-piece has been together since the late ‘90s after forming in Sydney, Australia. In the U.S., they first made waves in 2006 with their cover of Alphaville’s “Forever Young” on their third album, 2006’s Casino Twilight Dogs. With four albums under their belt, Youth Group has toured with Death Cab for Cutie, Coldplay, Kings of Leon and just recently, have joined The Get Up Kids on their reunion tour. Since then, the band’s singles have been featured in major television shows like The O.C. and Gossip Girl.
Youth Group’s hard-hitting lyrics melt with Toby Martin’s angelic, soothing voice. Their albums have been critically acclaimed as a combination of the best of ‘80s and ‘90s rock. Their name has been rumored to be an homage to Teenage Fanclub, a Scottish band that Toby Martin has credited as highly influential to his musical career. The Canopy Club is sure to hear singles like “Two Sides” and “All This will Pass” from Youth Group’s latest release, 2008’s The Night is Ours.
The band not only connects with fans during their live shows, but also reaches out using the Internet. While on tour, the band had kept their fans updated through their official website where they describe their experiences complete with accompanying illustrations made by members of the band. Tickets for the Canopy Club are $10 in advance, and the show begins at 7:00 p.m.
