Canadian punk rock band Sum 41 made a stop in Columbus for a gig for their fans . But before Sum 41, the band that last performed in this city more than one year ago, could pack its much awaited punch, 2 fellow Canadian group started the gig at the Newport Music Hall on Tuesday night.
Hunter Valentine, which an all women band from Toronto, Canada, hit the stage first and presented tracks from their off their 2012 album named “Collide and Conquer,” taking the opportunity to rock the group. In between songs, band frontwoman Kiyomi McCloskey asked “You can move for girls too, right?….Or is it too early and you’re too sober?”
After that it was Hollerado, a band from Ottawa, Canada which had a noticeably softer sound compared to that of that night’s headliner but one which nestled easily between other 2 acts. Hollerado also presented older songs such as 2010’s “Americanarama” but also tracks from their newe album named “White Paint” that was released 26th February.
Group frontman Menno Versteeg asked rooters to leave behind the head bobbing. On behalf of the band, he told the audience that thee band was happy to come back in the capita city of Ohio.
He spoke on behalf of the band, telling the audience the group was happy to be back in Ohio’s capital city. Versteeg told that they had been to Columbus before. But this is one of the places they like. Cincinnati is hard to spell. With blood pumping in fans that had been waiting excitedly since the gates opened, Sum 41 hit the stage after 10 pm. for fans which was ready for few old favorites and they got them.
‘So you like the metal, do you?’ Sum 41 lead singer Deryck Whibley asked the vociferous on Tuesday at the Pop’s Nightclub in Sauget early on as the punk band rocked through several of their top hits, as well as paid homage to artists who helped pave the path for their genre of music throughout the music set.
Sum 41 went through an 18 song set which relied on their well known album named “Does This Look Infected”. This is not only by chance. Witht this tour the punk rock band celebrated the album’s tenth year of release. With a punk style, the obvious nods for rock or pop were also there. The guys created a vibe which resonated throughout the whole place, beginning with their very first track called “The Hell Song”.
All through the music set the tempo of the night was kept at a good pace, and the band (guitarist Tom Thacker, bassist Jason “Cone” McCaslin, drummer Steve Jocz) were really tight for the whole set; just what people expect from a good well known and veteran band.
But what was really surprising was that they did not have the attitude of an old and veteran band. This is because the band still looks hungry for more, real hungry – the type of hungry that an unsigned band has playing for their life and the scope to finally have their big break. Several bands lose this kind of hunger after around a decade staying in spotlight. But, it seems that Sum 41 appears to have that same old young hunger and they rocked the audience with their hunger – rather their music.
From an eclectic rock duo to all female rockers; last Wednesday, there was a band for all styles at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento. More importantly, if you think that an all-girl rock band does not exist anymore, then you are making a mistake. Hunter Valentine, a Canada-based rock band. But they are not sweet like most of the known all girl bands. Hunter Valentine has a kind of masculine femininity like the rock genre.
Kiyomi McCloskey is the lead vocalist of the band, and she is accompanied by Aimee Bessada (keyboards and guitar), Veronica Sanchez (bass) and Laura Petracca (drums). The band set off with a great opening.
While on the stage, Kiyomi McCloskey told that just because they are girls that does not mean that they would play some folk songs. Revealing a tough exterior quite similar to rebel singer Pink, It is evident that Kiyomi is nothing but a tough female artist. With spiked hair as well as tattooed sleeves, Kiyomi and Hunter Valentine offered a perfect image of a rock band, but still they had the lyricism of females all set to make a riot.
Band IAMYDYNAMITE came in after that and later it was all about Sum 41 that became a household name with their debut album All Killer, No Filler that was released in the year 2001. And on their 10th anniversary tour Does This Look Infected, the band showed how matured they have became in the past ten years.
