The remainder of the concert was punctuated with well wishes from the crowd, as well as epic solos from the Montreal-based act. The quartet offered layers of grandiose melodies and far-reaching vocals from its lead married couple. The set list focused on tracks from the group's latest release, 'The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night,' including 'Albatross,' 'Last Train to Chicago' and both parts of 'Like the Ocean, Like the Innocent,' while also taking audience requests for older material.
With his shock of curly hair and tinted glasses, Lasek spent much of the night behind a custom-made guitar in the form of a sparkling circular rhombus. The jovial singer cracked jokes with fans and even admitted to getting "verklempt" during the series finale of 'Lost.' Meanwhile, supporting band Land of Talk unveiled new tunes off their upcoming release, 'Cloak and Cipher.' Not only did Lasek produce the new album, but he also joined the four-piece band as they performed the song 'Quarry Hymns' off the disc.
While the sounds of the night were expansive, and at times roaring, it was the small gestures onstage that stood out the most. At the end of the performance, Lasek gently leaned in to kiss the birthday girl, before launching into the Besnard Lakes' final song.
