Frontman Jesse Northey played guitar and sang with a  touch of ’80s pop feel while the band was locked in including keyboardist Joel Stretch who crouched over the keyboards.

They played the music form their new CD  ‘A Mutual Understanding’ and delved into their back catalogue  for an enjoyable evening which had much of the floor full of dancers. They ended with their over of the Violent Femmes’ classic “Blister in the Sun.”

 Fellow Edmontonian Doug Hoyer made good use of the screen too, displaying a variety of animation including rock musicians, while he jumped around in the shadows and played ’80s inspired pop music on guitar.

He also had quite a few people dancing in front of the stage.
