It wasn’t long ago that Torontoist was rapping about Five Blank Pages’ CD release; Last Blush, their first full-length, was just unleashed onto the white-belt world last October, but this weekend marks a significant change in the band’s line-up. Since growing from Noyan Hilmi’s solo project to a full-fledged band, the group has consisted of Hilmi, sister Chelen Hilmi, and wife Pinar Ozyetis. The band added bassist Rajiv Thavanathan later on, and has been kicking around Southern Ontario’s indie scene with their really, really adorable pop music ever since. Saturday, February 2, however, will be Chelen and Rajiv’s last show with the band. The two are moving on to focus their energies on other projects, both musical and non-musical, and Five Blank Pages have promised the “most funnest and craziest show we can” to show them off in style.
For $8, not only do you get to partake in the the fun-ness and craziness, you also get to take in the sweet tuneage of The Junction, The Ghost is Dancing, and The Vulcan Dub Squad. All the tear-shedding and booty-shaking goes down at the Horseshoe Tavern (370 Queen Street West), starting at 9:00 p.m.
