Think About Life, Diamond Rings The List (Music) Soundboard

When: Sun., March 14, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $10, $8 in advance
Diamond Rings is front man John O'Regan of brittle Toronto indie-art band the D'Urbervilles doing cooled-out synth cabaret. His deep, flat voice is as swaggery as it is swishy, which makes him sound a bit like the dark and melodramatic baby of Nick Cave and Marc Almond. On his latest seven-inch, "Wait & See" b/w "On Fire" (Tomlab), he ditches the remnants of indie rock from his debut and goes full-on new-romantic electro—which suits him perfectly. "Sooner or later / I'll disappoint you," he croons, his lyrics punctuated by the lightest pish of a transparently synthetic cymbal. Think About Life headlines. —Jessica Hopper
