It’s safe to say that Brighter Brightest delivers a killer set every time they come to Ottawa, and this last time was no exception. Performing alongside Ten Second Epic, Brighter Brightest really set the bar for the night with an amazing set full of songs that got the crowd singing and excited. Not only that, but we also all got to enjoy a solo acoustic set by Brighter Brightest’s own Derek Hoffman, which was a rare but real treat. Incredible night!
Edmonton’s own Ten Second Epic headlined a killer show in Canada’s Capital on March 28th, 2012. It was their first time back in Ottawa in a very long time, and as such they treated their fans with an extra long set (AND returned for an encore!), performing various songs from all of their albums throughout! Ottawa had not forgotten about TSE, and it was clear that TSE had not forgotten about Ottawa! Amazing set to say the least.
Hunter City Madness killed in Brockville at the end of November. They played an insane set, and as a special treat for the audience, were even joined by Today I Caught The Plague’s vocalist Dave Journeaux for a song. Amazing performance from all members! Images snagged on a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.
The Flatliners, one of my personal favourite bands, played an amazing show on the night of October 16th, co-headlining with Living With Lions. They played a solid set, balancing older with more recent songs, and totally killed it. Amazing energy from both the band and the crowd! Photos taken with a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.
This Is A Standoff played an amazing and energetic set in Ottawa on the night of October 28th. This show was part of their first cross-Canada tour in two years, Ottawa was certainly stoked on being able to welcome them back! They headined that night and put on a killer show. Images taken with a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.
Toronto’s Brighter Brightest stopped by Ottawa’s Cafe Dekcuf whilst on tour with Lifestory:Monologue, and put on an outstanding show. They performed a bunch of songs from their recently released full length titled Right For Me, including the single “Everyday”. Amazing energy and killer set! We shot the energy on a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.
Ottawa punk band Landslider performed a sick set as one of the openers for Sparrows and This Is A Standoff. This 4 piece band really started the night off on an amazing note, I’d love to see them again! Sickness shot with a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.
Sparrows, a 4 piece band from Ottawa, Ontario, stopped in their hometown on the night of October 28th to perform while on tour with This Is A Standoff.
The Strain, a young band who is fairly new to the Ottawa music scene, performed a great set at Mavericks on the night of October 7th. They came all the way from Wakefield to play and definitely started the night off on an amazing note! Their energy was shot with a Nikon D90, 14-24 mm f/2.8.
Amelia headlined in Sudbury back in August, performing after Ottawa’s Today I Caught The Plague. They got an insanely amazing response from the audience both during and after their set, great show overall! Images snagged on a Nikon D90, 50mm f/1.8.
