The audience capacity at The Rock Shop in Brooklyn, New York is 120 patrons. The audience capacity at Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church in Toronto, Canada, where Ohbijou played a sold-out show for the release of their third full length album ‘Metal Meets’, is 770.

Toronto-based Ohbijou have made quite a name for themselves in Canada. Regarded as the darlings of indie folk, if you will, the band’s previous album ‘Beacons’ (2009) quickly became a CBC Radio 3 favourite. Playing festivals and making radio appearances, almost all of Ohbijou’s shows in Toronto are sold-out fanfares that guarantee an amazing time with good friends and even better music. But outside of Canada, it’s a different scene.
