Hey Marseilles - Weds. Feb. 3 / 16 in at The Drake in Toronto!

 Coming from Seattle, Washington, the incredible band known as Hey Marseilles are stopping in Toronto tonight at The Drake Hotel. This is a band with a unique sound that we have loved for a long time. Their orchestral 'chamber pop' (as others have described it), is comparable to none. They speak the truth, they do it beautifully, and they make exceptional music to go along with it. Info and music below!
