This latest show was the last night of a coheadlining tour with Finger Eleven at The FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton. Click through and check out my shots of Finger Eleven and JJ Thompson.
The band did not disappoint. As always, they layer hard rock power chords with latin rhythms and overall virtuosity, guitar pyrotechnics, and powerful and soaring vocals. They're simply one of the best hard rocking bands Canada has ever produced and I'll see them any time I get the chance.
They spanned a number of albums with their set, focusing of course on Dig and Scenery and Fish. "Not Quite Sonic", "Used to be Alright", "Raspberry", "Earth, Sky & C.", "Summertime in the Void", "Another Sunday", "One More Astronaut" and "Rain will Fall" were among my favourites.
Finger Eleven joined I Mother Earth for the encore, which consisted of I Mother Earth's "Levitate", Finger Eleven's "Good Times" and a joint cover of Supertramp's "Bloody Well Right".
