We here at Torontoist don’t cover Emily Haines nearly enough, do we? Okay, so maybe we do — which is why, instead of going into a detailed account of her show Saturday night at the Danforth Music Hall, we’ll just say that it was a lovely hour of mellow music from her new album Knives Don’t Have Your Back, and that we’re glad it was a seated show. Her voice is so soothing that it was difficult for some of the audience to keep their eyes open.
Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton are touring throughout the U.S. to the end of January, so if you’re disappointed that you didn’t catch her here, maybe this will be a good excuse to take that mid-winter trip.
