Final Fantasy @ Lee's Palace, February 15, 2006. The Toronto Images Festival kicked off their 19th season with a sold-out fundraiser concert Wednesday at Lee’s Palace. Final Fantasy (Owen Pallett) took the stage first - why first is beyond me - in splattered painters pants and a T-shirt boldly emblazoned “FILM”. Drum partner Lex Vaughn joined him half way through with a similar pixelated “VIDEO” shirt. The pair may just revive that 80’s trend of quietly screaming appropriately arty statements on clothing. Frankie Say Relax. Highlights of his set included strong renditions of “Dad”, “Song Song Song” and a great new song (complete with “performance art”) from his upcoming album He Poos Clouds called “This Lamb Sells Condos” Anyone living downtown should get a good laugh out of that reference.
