The band is on the road celebrating the release of their most recent album, Effluxion. It's a more piano/keyboard driven album than Michael Benjamin Lerner's typical guitar-driven tunes. Which brings us to the unique complication of this show; their keyboard player couldn't cross the border into Canada because she didn't have her passport. Ooops. The band personified the old saying, "The show must go on!", learning some tunes during soundcheck and powering forward with a different set than they intended, but a great set.
They featured a bunch of my favourite tunes like "Wires", "Please Ask For Help", "Power Lines", and "Tokyo", as well as other great tunes from across the band's catalog. They even gave a special treat to a couple in the front row. Seems that they used "I Saw Lightning" as their wedding song and Michael was gracious enough to perform it for them. Quite a special moment.
