We performed a short set (there were eight bands each night) that contained two new songs and two favorites from the Crumbling Hearts ep.
Debuting for the very first time was the song written specifically in Todd's memory, Brotherhood as well as our new song Hardly Spoken (which we shared last week). After those we performed Crumbling Hearts and concluded with a truly epic version of Glasgow. The response was overwhelmingly positive so we're doubly excited to be playing a full headlining set for our upcoming show at the Media Club on May 30th!
It was an added bonus to also be performing as Pure later in the night, where Jordy Birch and I were joined by Leigh Grant for a very authentic version of Denial. Juice was the busiest man in showbiz that night: not only did he play guitar with Combine and Pure but he closed the night drumming with Fine Times as well! No stopping that guy!
Big thanks to everyone that helped out at the venue, Bob, Brian, Boris, Chris, Jason, the MC of the festivities Stephen Hamm, and to all the bands that contributed their time, and the great audience who helped make the night such a success! I'd also like to add that it was a pleasure to play a show that was open to all ages. Nothing more enjoyable than seeing a dancefloor packed with happy children dancing with their parents! I wish Vancouver could get its act together to allow such positive integration of people to attend shows together in our city too! Well done New Westminster!
Thanks for reading.
