Partner are from Sackville, New Brunswick and they came to have fun. Good old, loud guitar, rock and roll fun. The kind you may not get too much any more, but when you do, you can't wipe the smile off your face.
This particular show was a bit of a different dynamic from previous shows since they didn't have live drummer and the crowd started off the set sitting on the grass. Well, not having a drummer for this show didn't sap the energy of the show one bit, and they got the crowd up on their feet, jumping around and rocking out. They also played quite a few tunes that I hadn't heard at previous live shows, including some new ones. It was a great show, one that I rather uncharacteristically stayed put and enjoyed rather than venturing out to other stages to see the other Hillside 2018 offerings.
Partner are an awesome band with amazing tunes, a refreshingly honest and unselfconscious delivery, and a characteristically Canadian sense of humour. Check out their tunes and get out to one of their shows.
