Jason Collett

We really hate to use the phrase music collective, but how else to describe the members of Toronto’s Broken Social Scene? Supergroup? The Canadian Traveling Wilburys? We give up. Foxy BSS guitarist Jason Collett dipped his toes into solo waters with 2003’s Motor Motel Love Songs, a compilation of hazy folk-pop songs. His latest effort, Idols of Exile, is fleshed-out and full — the perfect soundtrack for damp spring days. Of course, he gets by with a little help from his friends: Scenesters Kevin Drew and Justin Peroff and extended family members such as Feist, Emily Haines from Metric and Andrew Whiteman and Julian Brown. We don’t think they’ll be joining him onstage tonight, but we’re sure he’ll do just fine.
