Wolf Parade at The Wellmont

October 29th, 2010

Considering their first-ever show was opening for Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade got off to an auspicious start. On the Montreal quartet’s initial tour they recorded and released a self-titled EP. These guys are prolific, so not too much later, another EP, also self-titled, emerged before Wolf Parade (above, playing “Language City” at the Great Wide Open Festival) headed to Portland, Ore., to record with Isaac Brock, who is not only the frontman of Modest Mouse, but also an A&R rep for Sub Pop Records. And so where post-punk and indie rock collided, a third EP (you can probably guess the title) was born before the band’s first LP, the terrific Apologies to the Queen Mary, quickly followed. This past June, the well-received Expo 86 came out, and Wolf Parade comes to The Wellmont Theatre next Wednesday. You should, too.
