Still Waters, the newest EP from The Como Brothers Band, does not disappoint!! This sophomore album was anything you could have asked for and then some!! From awesome lyrics to catchy riffs, great vocals to awesome instrumentation, the boys brought it! Historically many bands sophomore release is one that does not quite live up to there original album! However The Como Brothers took their time and put out an amazing EP! From the opening lyrics and riff of ‘Parachute’ I was hooked, with a Foo Fighters feel ‘Parachute’ really sets the tempo for this album! The next track ‘Bad Karma’ takes on this Sublime sounding genre and well to put it simply gets your body rocking! The rest well you’ll just have to pick up a copy and listen for yourself!
4.5 / 5
With a busy year ahead of these guys make sure you stay up to date with all their releases and concert dates!
With a little bit of bar hopping we sure got our fair share of bands in last night!! First off were The Strumbellas at the Horseshoe Tavern! From start to finish they absolutely killed it, a performance that I will not be forgetting anytime soon. Lets break this one down for you guys:
- The energy was relentless!! Truly a party from the opening moment
- Great interaction with the crowd!!
- Amazing harmonies between all the band members
The Bad and The Ugly:
Absolutely nothing the show rocked!!!
All in all The Strumbellas entertained a packed Horseshoe and displayed why they are up for their first Juno, which they are certainly proud of as lead singer joked, “If ’Juno’ what I mean”. It sounded a lot funnier then it reads but the points there!
Next we strolled over to The Rivoli once we found out that the secret guests were one of our favorites, Treble Charger!!! But before we got to flash back to the late 90′s and early 2000′s, we had to go through some more bands! First up were Vancouver natives, The Zolas.
In what seemed to be a shortened set, The Zolas used every second of their time to tear the roof off the Rivoli! Playing to a completely packed house The Zolas gave an amazing performance and an interesting story about the unusual travels of their synth board!
Finally our main event had arrived! As Treble Charger took the stage they reminded us that, “We’re from the 90′s”. But from start to finish they played all their hits and had everyone’s full attention!! The Rivoli was definitely the place to be as it became a star studded affair. Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench was right in the middle of the crowd jumping and singing along to the forever classic hit, “American Pyscho”.
It was a great night at Canadian Music Week and tonight’s shaping up to be just as good so for now we’ll leave you with the one and only Treble Charger!!
The Richmond Hill band are currently sitting as the 10th band in Canada on the alternatives chart and the 3rd ranked band in Ontario!! And where can you catch this amazing band live?! Right at our very own MarchOn Charity Festival!! The guys in You Vs Me have put together an amazing product and the results don’t lie!! With their latest EP “The Book Of …” enjoying continued success, You Vs Me continues to grow its massive fan base! We are extremely excited to have them at our event and can’t wait to meet their fans at our show!!
Here’s our favorite song from the guys!
