Cairo: With You at Toronto’s The Mod Club

The Edge’s Jingle Bell Rock Series

Saturday night in Toronto was the first show of The Edge’s Jingle Bell Rock concerts. The first in the Discovery Series at The Mod Club, and it was amazing! The Edge is donating $1 from each ticket sale to The Daily Bread Food Bank and you can be a part of it by attending any of the upcoming shows.

An early start, we saw Blue Sky Miners take the stage at 7:30. The crowd built slowly as the Toronto based indie/folk/rock band filled The Mod Club with their unique sound. They played from the October self titled debut release to a warm welcome from the crowd. Blue Sky Miners Toronto The Mod Club EdgeJingleBell Blue Sky Miners Toronto The Mod Club EdgeJingleBellBlue Sky Miners Toronto The Mod Club EdgeJingleBell

The next band up was one we’re quite fond of and we’ve written about them before. Birds of Bellwoods took the stage just after 8:00pm. Playing from their recent EP “The Fifth” and introducing a couple of new songs including one they were playing for the first time live. We wanted to mention that while Stevie mentioned not feeling 100% and dealing with the effects of cold meds, we thought they sounded perfect.

Prior to the start of the Birds of Bellwoods we had a chance for a quick chat with Cairo. What did we learn? I didn’t know that Nate’s old day job was in social media and after engaging with them on social media, that doesn’t surprise me. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and we hope to meet with them again soon.

Cairo took the stage at 9:00, except for Nate. Instead, nestled about 10 feet in front of the stage was a mic stand. Quiet, soft, up, intimate, up close and personal, one with the audience. They had our undivided attention.

Hopping up on stage the band played songs from “A History of Reasons” and more. Can you picture this? A cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” accompanied by special guests Terra Lightfood and Jacquie Neville of The Balconies. It was amazing! And yes, we have video!Cairo Toronto The Mod Club Terra Lightfoot and Jacquie Neville EdgeJingleBell

An amazing night full of fun, sincerity and crazy energy.  During the encore told us they’d be taking a break. It’s been a long tour and they’ve earned it. We’re hoping for new material to come from the break and can’t wait to hear it.
