PREVIEW: Open Mike Eagle at the Mod Club 9/14

Next week the Mod Club is hosting a show that is simply too good to be true.  This is the first chance for Toronto to see Open Mike Eagle perform music from his album 'Hella Personal Film Festival' with Paul White.  This show is also one of a handful with Open Mike Eagle opening for Gold Panda, a show that is pretty weird, and definitely wonderful.  'Hella Personal Film Festival' is one of our favourite albums of the year, and you can check our review here.  Gold Panda is touring in support of his newest album 'Good Luck and Do Your Best', get it here

The Mod Club is the perfect setting for a show like this.  Exactly where you'd expect to find a bill so unique.  Get your tickets here...
