Said the Whale @ St. James Hall, 11/25/09
Last Wednesday, Said the Whale held a hometown release party for their outstanding new album, Islands Disappear. I’ve already covered two of the group’s concerts this year (here and here), so I won’t be posting a detailed review of the show.

Of course, it is worth mentioning that the performance was more of the usual awesomeness from the Vancouver quintet. Standouts from the set included a barn-burning medley of “Holly, Ontario” and “Dear Elkhorn,” as well as an acoustic (sans-microphone) version of “Curse of the Currents” that was downright chilling. Another highlight occurred when singer/guitarist Ben Worcester tossed a dozen Tom Hortons donuts into the crowd, yelling, “All the tall people get donuts!”

Here’s a gallery of photos from the event, courtesy of Leigh Eldridge. Check out more of her work here.
