On a day before the first family day in BC Mitigo had their CD releases which was supported by much of their extended family so it was quite fitting. The fact that it was at the Railway Cub was icing on the Go Fuck Yourself cake which if you didn’t know is what Mitigo’s new demo release is called. As the show would go I missed the first two bands so now I describe them each and give you a link so you can check them out.
Sally’s Hot is a pop rock type of band that is very much for people who like bubble gum pop about girls and such. It is upbeat but very middle of the road as in you could put on any popular pop punk band and here the same song.
Cry of Silence is a band that could easily be played on The Fox very radio friendly. I really like Eddie Lam’s voice and lots of hooks just not my cup of tea.
All Photos Taken at this show were done by Diane Jackson.
The Band I did see besides Mitigo is Real Mad Decent who had some interesting breakdowns and good buildups. I thought the singer Zak Mcmillan sounded a lot like Tim Mcllrath from Rise Against at least live. But listening to their recording he’s completely different. The best song I like from their self title ep is Fine Tuned Presentable Magic Show. The fact that these guys are so young and already this good the future looks good for them.
Mitigo had a lot to look forward to this show releasing two albums playing in front lots of friends and family. Which Virginia (Lead Vocals) solidified by inviting all the people they thanked on their demo GFY to the front of the stage which was a nice gesture. They proceeded to shred through that album from front to back. An Oi is heard from the crowd which Mark (Guitarist Vocals) shot down saying that “wasn’t fucken good enough!”Jerry Hairy (Bass) added some Egyptian flare to the start of D Bag. This band always gives their all every show and as this show will be their last for a while as Virginia is going on a world adventure it was more extra special. The only thing I think they can improve on is the range of style and sound that this band portrays. Ive said it before that I can’t wait to see what this band does once they find their true sound. It was a Rockin Sockin Kickass Stompin greasy show, a perfect end before they go on hiatus.
I say good day to you! Eat some more music!
