See Great Lake Swimmers on Sunday

September 25th, 2009

The Toronto-based Great Lake Swimmers have an acoustic, folk-rock sound that’s earned them favorable comparisons to After the Gold Rush-era Neil Young (a high compliment, indeed). The band, led by talented singer-songwriter Tony Dekker, released its fifth full-length album, Lost Channels, earlier this year. And now the band is touring the U.S. before heading to Europe in November. See them, above, playing “I Saw You in the Wild” in Paris, and then go see them on Sunday at The Bowery Ballroom.
