Two Sets of the Sadies on Saturday Night

February 24th, 2010

The Toronto-based quartet the Sadies—brothers Dallas and Travis Good (the sons of Bruce Good, who performed with his two siblings as the Good Brothers, Canada’s preeminent country-rock band in the ’70s) alongside drummer Mike Belitsky and bassist Sean Dean—have been putting out music since 1998. But their sound is a little hard to pin down because they cover so much musical terrain: bluegrass, rockabilly, surf music and psychedelic rock. Plus they’ve earned even wider appeal by recording an album with R&B legend Andre Williams, serving as the backing band for Neko Case and having an instrumental featured on Adult Swim’s 12. oz. Mouse. There’s a lot going on with this band, which is why they’re doing two sets when they play Mercury Lounge on Saturday. So check them out, above, playing “Anna Leigh,” and then double your pleasure in person this weekend.
