Every year for Canadian Music Week, The Mod Club is home to a night hosted by Sirius Satellite Radio. The show consists of acoustic performances by some great names in Canadian music.

This year, there were performances by Joel Plaskett, Jeff Martin (previously of The Tea Party), Default, and The Trews. I had intended to go to The Mod Club and stay there all night, but the way the night unfolded meant that I only ended up sticking around for Joel Plaskett before heading down to The Indie Awards at the Royal York.

Since it was an acoustic set with just Joel and one other male player, it made for an amusing start to the song "Through & Through & Through" (which starts out with the female backup singers). Plaskett was his usual personable self, and the stripped-down set put the focus on his musicianship. A huge portion of the crowd knew the songs, and sang along at appropriate moments. When the set ended, even though everyone knew it was going to be a short set, I think we all wanted just a little more.
