Photos: Juno Award Winner Lights Rings In 2013 In Mississauga

By: Curtis Sindrey –

Toronto dance-punk quintet The Nightbox and Juno Award winner Lights rung in the new year at Mississauga’s Celebration Square last night.

Openers The Nightbox, who’s debut self-titled EP was produced by MSTRKRFT’s Al-P and Death From Above 1979’s Sebastien Grainger, dazzled the elated crowd with catchy Two Door Cinema Club-like guitar riffs and equally memorable synth riffs.

Lights performed an eclectic mix of both old and new material, including “Drive My Soul” and “Second Go” from her 2009 debut album The Listening, but mostly stuck to her lastest album Siberia with tracks like “Where The Fence is Low,” “Toes,” and “Timing is Everything.”

She also performed a spirited cover of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” from their acclaimed 1978 album Parallel Lines. While both Lights and Debbie Harry are vastly different frontwomen, Lights captured a similar charisma and seductiveness that Harry embodied on the original track.

Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion also made an appearance just before the countdown and vowed “to keep Mississauga the most crime-free city in Canada” and “to make Mississauga the cleanest city in Canada — no litter, anywhere.”

Degrassi star, and Mississauga native, Daniel Kelly hosted the evening and said that there was no other place that he wanted to be to ring in the new year. “This New Year’s has been incredible…right here, in my hometown,” said Kelly.
