Toronto based band Fancy Girls Market took over the stage at the MOD Club last night to give a fun performance presenting their catchy songs which effortlessly cross genres of rock, punk and pop. Lead singer Keith Burkett’s performance was very energetic and he utilized his voice well. Guitarist Justin Jun steered through the melodies with altering between melodic and heavy riffs. The rhythm section was great with Mikey Stecky-Efantis on the bass and Izador Centeno on the drums who did not only stood out through his precise drumming, but also through his extravagant taste in clothing. He showed the audience how to wear only underwear with style by adding a bow tie to his look.
It’s been a very good year for Fancy Girls Market so far. The band was recently featured as band of the day on; and just last Thursday, Fancy Girls Market were awarded Best Young Songwriters at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Watch out for these fancy boys and make sure you’ll let them rock your world next time they are around.

All nights have their highlights, and the TIMAs did too: A very spirited ollie off the stage, with cymbals lit on fire in background by (one has to assume aspiring hair model) Keith Burkett, lead faux-screamer of the unclassifiable Toronto band, Fancy Girls Market. Though this random act was a trifle confusing, it brought some funny looks, which in turn, brought smiles, which in turn made it sort of worth it.
