It was incredibly hot inside downtown’s the Smell. Kids packed the small venue to see An Horse with little regard for the sweltering temperature. Despite the heat, it seemed the genuine warmth from the stage is what kept the crowd cool. I’m not sure if it was the change of pace from the larger shows of the recent U.S. tour with Tegan and Sara or the sheer close proximity to the dense crowd, either way Kate Cooper and Damon Cox took the opportunity to give a performance, both energetic and intimate.
