A little while ago we told you about the ever talented Chloe Charles. She went off on her fabulous tour and came back with not only great stories, but a great new band too. Comprised of Toronto natives Charles and Sam McLellan, and Texans Aly Tadros and Douglas Jay Boyd, The Sweetness is the anti- folk supergroup that proves a love of music really can make it all work. Through the support of fans and well-wishers along the way, the foursome has done quite well:
Not only do we mesh perfectly, but the support ranges from donations (fan-funded album and tour), to free meals and documentaries. Most North American shows will be filmed for a documentary by award winning German director Pascal Fetzer.

The live album was recorded with The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael while everyone found themselves in Austin. Soon after, The Sweetness would play at nine (yes, nine) SXSW showcases.
With positive show reviews scattered across the globe, the quartet now brings its sweet sounds to Toronto for a CD release like no other. Cabaret style.
Tonight at The Rivoli, the band invites you and your friends to dress up in your best cabaret-inspired wears for an evening of fun and music. All the details are right here on Facebook, so make sure to check it out and start raiding the closet.
