CMW 2015 Friday Night ft. The Dead South, Shore Thing & Midday Swim

Friday night, on the west side of town, we mixed things up with a little indie pop rock, some folk indie soul and a side of Americana folk roots.

Midday Swim
Shore Thing
The Dead South

Midday Swim

First we hit The Mod Club for a little Midday Swim. We’d had someone recommend that we check out this band and the timing and location were just right. There was a good sized crowd for an 8:00pm show and the energy was positive. The band formed less than a year ago were tight and professional.

Shore Thing

We moved to the Smiling Buddha and Shore Thing was setting up just as we arrived. The four piece from Ontario were charming and told us the story of having their van towed during load in, sorry guys. Great lyrics, nice sound, we’d go see them again.

The Dead South

Next up was The Dead South. They were the reason we were here. We’d seen them before at the eOne/Gibson Juno Party and they’d made an impression. It was great to see them in such an intimate venue. They didn’t disappoint. They played a fairly long set and finished up with one of our favourites, “Honey You“.

From the moment they started playing, the crowd moved forward. Feet started tapping and then started stomping. The four member band dress alike, move together, their voices blend beautifully together.  If you get a chance to see them, take it!
