Smith & Myers

Smith & Myers

2021-12-16


If you like Shinedown, you'll love Smith & Myers! Why? Well, Smith & Myers is Shinedown, but stripped down and acoustic. They also play "covers" by letting the audience pick what songs they perform! This make every single Smith & Myers show unique to that date.

Their 2 albums simply act as a basis for their show. It's fantastic.

When performing as Smith & Myers, it's definitely a different experience then when they hit the stage as Shinedown. The lighting was a lot darker. Brent Smith (singer) sounds absolutely phenomenal live and these acoustic shows really highlight his beautiful vocal range. Zach Myers (guitar) also sings, which is something I never realized until seeing them live. His vocal skills really surprised me!

They opened with “Coast to Coast”, off their...

The Aces

The Aces brought their appropriately named "Under My Influence" tour to Detroit and everyone in the crowd was definitely under their influence. The crowd sang along and cheered practically non-stop through the 17 song set plus two encore songs. It covered an assortment of favourite songs and finished the encore with their most successful single to date: Stuck

Often described as an "alternative pop band", their sound encompasses much more than that. It also has a huge 70's soul sound with influences of funk. It just makes you want to dance along.

These four friends from Provo, Utah have been making music together for nearly 10 years, and it's obvious from their stage presence that they love what they are doing. Bassist McKenna Petty was mostly smiles the entire time she was playing aside from a few moments of deep focus. Likewise, guitarist Katie Henderson truly seems to enjoy playing live to the nearly sold-out crowd. Rounded out with sisters Alisa...

The Beaches

The Beaches

Toronto's The Beaches brought their international show to Detroit. Supporting their latest EP, Future Lovers these Pop Alt Rockers brought an amazing energy to the stage and got the crowd screaming. It's easy to see why The Beaches won 2018's Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year.

Their strong 9 song set included the best of each of their previous EP's and Studio Album.

Kylie Miller (Guitar) dominated the stage and constantly grabbed your attention with her strong performance and dynamic hair waving, while Leandra Earl (Keyboards/Guitar) likewise had you watching the opposite side of the stage. It was almost like being at a tennis match going back and forward trying to focus on both of them. Meanwhile Jordan Miller (Vocals/Bass) sounded as solid live as on their recordings...

Sawyer

Sawyer

2021-12-04


Opening a show is never easy. The crowd slowly drizzles in since most of them only purchase a ticket to see “the main act". Yet, the opener needs to give their full energy to get those who are there amped up for the headline. It doesn’t always work. However, when the opening act has as much energy and stage presence as Sawyer does, it makes those early attendees thankful that the were there to see the entire show.

Their short seven song set may have only lasted 30 minutes, but it gave a great sampling of their sound and left you wanting to hear more.

With mostly originals (and one cover of Cable Car (over my head) by The Fray it was a great sampling of what they have to offer. Every song just seemed to resonate on some level. My personal favourite came towards the end of the set with one of their latest offerings, “This Might be a Mistake (but it feels good)”. Everyone alive has clearly experienced that feeling at some point...

Olivia O’brien put on an amazingly successful show. It sold out the House of Blues Chicago which is something that she's been doing often on this current tour.

I was excited to find out not only how she would sound live, but also too see what she would do on stage. She is the first artist I have ever seen do a show that made it feel like a tv show was being filmed in front of a live audience. It gave Hairspray the musical vibes!

The show doesn't start with your typical intro. Insteads Olivia does a little infomercials directed to some of the songs from her new album, with small graphics to match. I absolutely loved it and found it hilarious. I never would have thought of this amazing and creative idea!

Following that, a man's voice came over the P.A. system booming “And now...

Wavey Davey (Dave Bayley) was certainly on fire as Glass Animals headlined a solde-out show at the Alexandra Palace in London on November 19, 2021. Returning home to the UK following a successful US run, Glass Animals celebrated with over 10,000 screaming fans.

Before the show even started, concert-goers were launched into nostalgia through the set design. There were palm trees, a basketball hoop, diving board, neon signs, balloons, and one lovingly placed pineapple on the side of the stage. Massive screens laid out around the stage were lined with neon, with their shape suggesting old CRT TV's or similar computer monitor. Over the night, their graphics mimicked the 90s internet era, a symbolism found heavily throughout their 3rd studio album, Dreamland. As their set time approached, the computer screen counted down the remaining “download time”, with a glitch of the screen finally bringing the four bandmates onto the stage.

The audience was treated to a high energy opener with Life Itself...

Live music is back! And Juno Award Winner, Dizzy, is taking the show on the road for a limited 6 show tour across New York and Ontario.

Catching up with them mid-tour at London's Rum Runners, there was a small but very appreciative and vocal crowd of die hard fans that braved the cold night to see their "favourite band ever!" at an intimate setting.

As Dizzy took the stage for this stop in the "Spill My Guts Tour", brothers Alex, Mackenzie, and Charlie Spencer could be seen wearing matching outfits. Vocalist, Katie Munshaw joined them moments later and gave a little dance around the stage before taking her place at the microphone up front. You could tell from her smile that she was happy to be back on stage and able to perform for the bands fans that came to show their support.

The 17 song set contained a mix of songs from thier 2019...

The Backseat Lovers

The Backseat Lovers

2021-11-16

The Backseat Lovers couldn’t have seemed happier on November 16th, 2021 in London. Making their international debut, this show marked a huge milestone in the band’s career and the sold-out crowd offered a roaring welcome to the UK. Under the glittering gold ceiling of the Moth Club, the band shone.

Entering the stage, the four Utah natives immediately started with a long instrumental intro before launching into Just a Boy. The intensity with which they began the show was juxtaposed almost immediately after with huge smiles from the bandmates. Lead vocalist Josh Harmon was visibly overwhelmed by the reception as he remarked that “We are losing our marbles. This is crazy!”. There was a clash as he performed with piercing stares and then broke into giddy smiles all night that somehow just worked.

It was a hot and sweaty night in the 350-cap room, with two band members choosing to go shirtless and having to bring a fan and towels on-stage to keep them cool. The audience certainly felt...

From behind a screen during the pandemic, TikTok breakout star Thomas Headon has built a massive fan following around his charming personality and catalog of self-written and produced music. He took that connection to a sold out show on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at Heaven in London.

His 15 song set included a blend of crowd-pleasing singles like Focus and Grace, new releases from his upcoming EP Victoria, and a cover of Blur’s Song 2. With almost everyone else in the world celebrating Taylor Swift’s re-recording of RED, Thomas covered We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

The crowd support really seemed to inspire Headon. He appeared to be having just as much fun as his fans. Everyone was dancing around all night. He interacted with some of his fans directly, singing Happy Birthday to one and creating a TikTok with another from the stage. Between the balloon drop during Strawberry Kisses and the confetti ending of UrbanAngel1999, it would be impossible for fans who waited almost...
