The Canyoneers 12:30 p.m., Jan. 17
Fronted by husband-and-wife duo Murray Lightburn (guitar, vocals) and Natalia Yanchak (keys), Montreal-based indie pop rockers the Dears is touring in support of Times Infinity Volume Two, which continues their 20-plus-year penchant for orchestral, anthemic pop akin to ’70s and ’80s Canadian prog acts, somewhat watered down for post-modern ears and post-millennial singles consumers. Two singles are streaming online, “To Hold and Have” and “Of Fisticuffs,” and social media posts indicate that the band will have some new unrecorded tracks to break in during a road trip that includes the Casbah on March 1, with sessions for their next studio album set to start as soon as the tour wraps.
