Canadian stars: the limestone index and the waking eyes - music


Canadian Indie bands are dominating the music scene and it just so happened that three of them took over the Rivoli on Queen St. for a night of true entertainment. Boy, The Mineral Index and The Waking Eyes all performed for free at an event that was hosted by BenQ called the Video Sound Tour. Regrettably I was incapable to make it for the West Coast natives Boy who were the openers for the show but was told that they were great but missing the entertaining factor.

"I attention their music was good but I for myself like examination bands that look like they are having fun when they play, but they were hot," said Melanie, a fan from the crowd.

The Granite Index, in my opinion one of my favourites, rocked the show. The Hamilton trio graced the stage with their talent, as songster and guitarist Brad Germain even got intimate with the listeners by in receipt of in there and also construction sure we all much-admired them since it was a live taping. All he hunted was to make them sound like they were a well-known band that each one loved but the crowd did fail to attain that. The guys from The Mineral Index beyond doubt stole the show explicitly with the track by them 'Not So Bright' that is in receipt of great airplay on the Edge. Germain added humour to the show and was fun to watch as he endlessly jumped up on the loudspeaker boxes. With Ryan Tweedle on Bass and Adam Knickle on Drums they added accurately what this band has that makes it stand out from any other. The Casby Awards were when I first bare these guys and ever since their tunes are constantly in performance on a CD in my car.

Melanie and Ashley were two girls right up in the front that seemed to be enjoying themselves the most out of everyone. Here's what they had to say about The Sandstone Index. "I've seen the Sandstone Index a bunch of times and I love them, they are amazing live," said Melanie. "This was my first time considering them and they were great," said Ashley.

Next up was The Waking Eyes a further Casby performer. This is an added band who sounds the same live as on their CD, maybe better. They have two vocalists that in all probability helps them differentiate themselves from others. These boys from Winnipeg Manitoba have been appearing on the charts and for sure played a great show.

"The concert was great, they all sure know how to achieve above all when The Waking Eyes brought out the trumpet," said Samantha Cox.

Yes that's right, a trumpet. Rusty who plays guitar and does lyrics brought out a new talent and that was gracing the interview with his trumpet in performance skills. A little I've never seen ahead of but went well with the music they played. He was in reality good and the crowd was air it for sure.

The Waking Eyes and The Mineral Index played admirable sets and looking about at the addressees they all seemed contented with what they saw. General a memorable night, the venue was complete sizing even all the same at times it was a hardly crowded but when three Canadian rock bands get as one for a tour there is cast iron enjoyment. Next time when they come to town I'll be there, behind them 100%.
