CMW can really highlight the weirdness of Toronto crowds. It’s awkward to have a performer ask people to come within six feet of the stage more than once during a set, and more awkward when nobody listens. The post-song reactions made it clear that the audience was enjoying Piper Davis; why the lack of visible excitement?
In any case, Davis was a good last-minute pick. Her quirky blues vocals are a good mix with her bass-heavy beats, which she creates herself. I picked up her EP and will put it on my iPhone tomorrow, I think.
