WebsiteThe New Deal
This is your last chance to see Toronto’s The New Deal, as they've announced this will be their final tour. The band spent their 12-year career straddling the line between dance music and the kind of jam-band improv that made the group’s popularity in San Francisco none too surprising. Working with an organ-bass-drums lineup, The New Deal cycles through tight house grooves and crusty diversions into fusion-land. The group’s last studio album is 2003’s Gone Gone Gone—which includes vocal contributions from Feist and Martina Sorbara—but the stage usually proves a better home, as shown on the various live discs that have followed, so get it while you can.
