STARS, Canadian 5-piece indie rock veterans headlined Music Hall of Williamsburg this past Tuesday, October 6th with Geographer opening to celebrate their newest album release, No One is Lost. The band’s engaging lead singer, Torquil Campbell brought up a few nostalgic topics during their set, mentioning living in the Williamsburg neighborhood back in the day when his apartment “still existed,” hinting about the vast changes the Brooklyn area has seen. No hard feelings were present though, as Campbell brought his amazing energy to the stage, dancing and singing both in turn and in harmony with female vocalist, Amy Millan.
STARS played both old and new music alike, having the crowd reciprocate the passionate energy that filled the room. Drummer Pat McGee, guitarist Chris Seligman and bassist Evan Cranley held down solid beats and melodies that meshed gracefully with Campbell and Millan’s vocals. During the final words of banter, the band claimed that this would be last STARS tour for the near future, however Campbell seemed to have no doubt that the band would continue making music for a long time to come.
