Xprime were band number three to hit the stage on Friday January 22, heating things up before Sate's stellar performance. Talking to some folks before the show, I heard good things about this Niagara Falls / Welland pop rock band, so I was looking forward to their set.

I really enjoyed their fun pop songs. I found the tunes to be very groovy and funky with those driving beats and that off-beat hi-hat thing that I love. They're a great power trio who even switched up guitar and bass duties during the set and everyone took their turn on lead vocals. "Lipstick Cigarette" was a tune that stood out for it's strut. "Cynical" featured great crunchy power chords.

They even threw in a cover by one of their favourite UK bands, The Arctic Monkeys' "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor". The set featured lots of new tunes and they hope to release a new album later this year.
