So, I went to a concert this weekend in Inglewood at The Forum on Arcade Fire‘s Reflector Tour and was able to see The Unicorns open for the band. They played again the next night and plan on playing Barclays Center August 22 through the 24. The band from Montreal, Canada, who was formed in 2000 and is made up of Nicholas Thorburn (Nick Diamonds), Alden Penner (Alden Ginger), and Jamie Thompson (J’aime Tambeur), has launched a Twitter account, and a Soundcloud page.
The last EP the band put out in 2004, titled 2014, totally makes it seem as though the whole thing was planed this way from the start. During the hiatus Nick Thorburn formed the band Islands, which Jamie Thompson was an on-and-off member of, and worked on other projects such as Mister Heavenly and Human Highway. Alden Penner formed the bands Clues and Hidden Words and released a solo album called, Exegesis.
Here’s a look at the bands first gig back together. (Sorry for the quality)
Also, take a look at some of the band’s other work.
