The Dears @ Boot & Saddle.

The Dears performed  in Philly on Saturday, the last East Coast show for a while for the veteran indie rockers from Montreal.

They brought their Times Infinity Volume Two Tour with indie-pop singer Lou Canon as the opener to Boot & Saddle and opened with “Taking it to the Grave,” the first track from their latest album.

The Dears showed Philadelphia that in their 17 plus years of touring, they have not lost a step. They focused on their newer material but they also peppered in classics, like the “Whites Only Party” and “Hate then Love.”

They closed with “Lost in the Plot,” the song that drew comparisons between The Dears and The Smiths, as well as between frontman Murray Lightburn and Morrissey.
