When was the last time you went out dancing? Well, pull on those boogie shoes, because Diamond Rings is in town. Diamond Rings (Toronto musician John O’Regan) creates infinitely listenable, danceable, driveable tunes. His work is much more than background music, though. The Herald’s Mike Bell nailed it when he wrote, albeit longwindedly, “Anyone who grew up in the ’80s or has an affinity for the music of the time can’t help but listen and hear that past, the dark wave, the cold wave, the new wave, the old wave. Can’t help but hear Howard Jones, Clan of Xymox, Depeche Mode, Leisure Process, Sique Sique Sputnik, Dead Or Alive, etc. Can’t help but be won over, seduced and satisfied. It’s stylish. It’s sexy. It’s voluptuous. It’s superb. And it’s also incredibly of now. Right now. Today.” Hear that? Now. Today. So what are you waiting for? Check out Diamond Rings Tuesday night at the Hi-Fi Club.  Tickets are $15 plus service charges.
