LinkStuff – Erasure Edition

by Mike Holman

Last weekend I went to see the band Erasure who played at the Sound Academy (used to be the Docks) here in Toronto. It was the first concert I had been to in a few years and was it ever good! Andy Bell can really sing (still) and they put on a fun show. The venue is right on the Toronto harbour and has a great view from the patio.

Here are a few of their songs that I like:
