Big Wreck and Theory of a Deadman played the General Motors Centre in Oshawa, on Friday, November 30th. The arena was not filled to capacity, which is disappointing, as these are two phenomenal Canadian acts. Their songs are very melodious and infectious. These are our musicians, and it was wonderful to see them on the same bill.
This was not a Bieberesque song and dance. There were no gimmicks. There was no pyrotechnics. There was not even a smoke machine in the venue. There was no elaborate stage set up, just the simplicity of colour in lights. Each band hung their own banner and performed on a wide open stage. The rest was just music.
I didn't have a chance to obtain a reviewer pass, so these are just some of my impressions from the pit. The lighting was simply beautiful, and the leading men fun and expressive.
