Mark Linkous and his band Sparklehorse were in Toronto on Friday to play a concert at The Mod Club, one of my favourite local venues. I'm told he's notorious for disliking touring, but on stage he exposed a few mild smiles when the crowd showed their appreciation, and seemed to be having a reasonably good time. Perhaps it's the not-on-stage portion of touring that bothers him? Either way, Sparklehorse didn't take the stage until about 11:45 PM, played a set that included many songs off earlier albums, and played a one-song encore. Mark had a fan positioned between the monitor speakers, blowing air up at his face. In addition to keeping him cool, it also caused his hair to blow around in a very photogenic rock-n-roll way. For more information on Sparklehorse, have a look at my review of the most recent album Dreamt For Light Years In The Belly Of A Mountain.

Jesse Sykes opened for Sparklehorse with some emotional rock backed by blues-inspired lead guitar.
