Broken Social Scene is the cat's meow when it comes to Canadian indie rock supergroups. The core members of the band are Kevin Drew and Brandan Canning, but they have a rotating lineup otherwise. They at one time or another have boasted Leslie Feist, Emily Haines (of Metric), Torquil Campbell (of Stars), rapper k-os, and Jason Collett as part of the group. Working on an open door policy whomever of the part-time members of the band can show up for any given show are welcomed to play. At any one time you can have up to 15 members onstage.
With a sound that is very fluid, but usually labeled as 'baroque pop' – meaning there are plenty of different instruments used like guitars, horns, woodwinds, and violins. The result is a large, experimental and often chaotic (in a good way) sound. It is always a fun time when you see these two-time winners of the Juno for Alternative Album play live – fun in an unpredictable way.
