Rocket Surgery’s four and half year Monday night residency at The Toucan came to en epic conclusion last week, as band took to the stage one last time. The end of this weekly tradition was spurred on by frontman, Rueben deGroot, who is pulling up stakes to move back out west. Rueben arrived in Kingston 10 years ago, while those of a certain vintage will vividly recall seeing him take the stage at the once infamous open mic nights at the Grad Club. He has since been a fixture of the local music scene, and will truly be missed. While the band is looking forward to booking more dates for future shows and recordings, they’re also celebrating the release of their latest album titled Darkplace, Ontario.
Hit play on the video above for one of the lead singles, Mind Heart, which features the entire cast of Rocket Surgery and some very special guests. The video was directed by Rueben deGroot and Justin Holland, and shot/edited by Justin Holland.
