Live Music: Hercules and Love Affair at Mod Club, Toronto

Hercules and Love Affair was Monday nights hottest dance party in Toronto. A very sweaty crowd greeted the Brooklyn-based nu-disco dance trio featuring interesting guest vocalists and the lovely boyish Kim Ann Foxman, with hands held high.

We haven’t seen them live since their Parisian debut all the way back in 2008, when they played along side Saul Williams, The Noisettes, and DJ Cut Chemist at La Cigalle, and we must say, they put on one hell of a show with vocalist Nomi Ruiz that night.

Monday’s show pleasantly surprised us with some new tracks and new vocalists in addition to the old favourites. A very smiley Andy Butler mixed it up behind Foxman, Aerea Negrot (who bore a striking resemblance to Today’s Special’s Nina Keogh, whoa 80s) and one other vocalist whose name we didn’t manage to catch.

The highly anticipated second album, is rumored to feature new vocalists Kele Okereke, Shaun Wright and Aerea Negrot and is set to drop in September 2010.
