Upon learning that the Canadian group would be playing Denver’s Ogden Theatre on July 28, the Indy’s crack investigative team went into overdrive.

With eight official members and countless collaborators, the great white northern supergroup is responsible for launching the careers of indie darlings like Case, A.C. Newman and Dan Bejar. (My dog was also in the band for a short time but left due to “musical differences.”)
The Dodos and Imaad Wasif are also on the bill, and tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Friday) at 10 a.m.
