The Silver Dollar’s days are numbered, thus necessitating one last CMW visit to the oddly-arranged venue that’s known for taking chances on new bands.
Though Sportsfan (not to be confused with Sports Fan) have only been around since 2015, they hardly need anyone handing them opportunities. They were—by a noticeable margin—the night’s most cohesive outfit, and achieved a clarity in sound that few bands have managed in that room (more the fault of the room than of the sound guy).
We anxiously await a full album from the Toronto quartet; in the mean time, acquaint yourselves with five of their tunes *here,* including the above ode to Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman.
One of the better bands we caught, this CMW.
