Show Review: Every Time I Die (03/19/10)
Show Review: Every Time I Die (03/19/10)
03/20/10 at 10:21 AM by Deborah Remus
Went to the show last night, here's my take on it:

Trapped Under Ice

To be totally honest, I never heard of this hardcore band from Maryland until it was announced they were on this tour. The crowd seemed more familiar than I was actually and it was a good time with lots of energy and moshing. I wouldn't say that their set turned me into a gigantic fan, but it was pretty decent anyway.

Polar Bear Club

I was pretty excited to see this band and they didn't disappoint. Chasing Hamburg was one of my more favourite records from 2009 and they pulled off the songs live just as well as they do on a recording. There was no overly amusing banter or anything, they just played but they played well and here is what the set comprised of. If anything, it was just a shame they didn't play a little longer:

Four Year Strong

When they were driving from Iowa to Winnipeg, a wheel came off their trailer and they were stuck on the side of the road for a little while. Doors were supposed to open at 6, but they didn't actually open at 7. In fact, during the start of Polar Bear Club's set they still weren't at the venue, but they made it with just 10 minutes to spare! And they still put on such a great show. You couldn't even tell they didn't have a chance to settle in and do a soundcheck, like they did when they were here last April for Taste of Chaos. It was awesome hearing the new songs live. And it was pretty cool when a bunch of people rushed up on stage for a big sing along at the end:

Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die


Every Time I Die

Since FYS were finally here, I missed some of Every Time I Die's set to get everything sorted out. A big thank you goes out to Alan Day for taking time to talk to me instead of cancelling the interview all together! Expect it ready to read within the next 2-3 weeks because school is SO busy for me right now.

Anyway, from what I did catch of their set it seemed like a good time! They were here a few years ago with Alexisonfire so it's nice to have them back up here in Canadian cities most bands don't play. Keith and the rest of the band were great and they seemed to have played a wide range of their material. There wasn't an encore though and here's a rough taste of what they played. This is far from complete, but I figured I should put down at least a little bit of what I caught since they were the headliners: Roman Holiday, The Marvelous Slut, Apocalypse Now and Then, No Son of Mine, Who Invited the Russian Soldier?, The New Black, Kill the Music, After One Quarter of a Revolution and We’rewolf.

And that's about it. It was very much a less talk, more rock type of show.
