The Racoons a rowdy bunch at Fortune Sound Club

Last night I had the pleasure of witnessing one heck of a sweaty, slamming show, compliments of Victoria’s The Racoons at the Fortune Sound Club.

I saw The Racoons perform this past summer at the Victoria Fringe Festival Block Party, but that was before I really started digging their album Islomania. I’ve become so addicted to them lately that I was beyond pumped to see them again.

The Good News opened the evening with their 60’s-inspired indie pop. If you haven’t heard of The Good News, you should definitely check them out. Think of Winter Gloves minus the electro vibes.

The Racoons, as expected, were phenomenal. They played songs off of Islomania and a few new songs off their upcoming album. They were head banging on stage, hopping about and sweating everywhere. The small room made the band sound a lot louder, harsher and more intense, which was a nice change from their poppy-sounding record. And the fans there must’ve agreed, because they too were jumping and flailing all over the dance floor.
