Elwins a pop fueled highlight of a busy Monday night

E-mail Print PDF

 It was one busy Monday night, Feb. 23. Most people who go out on weekdays were at Big Sugar at the University of Lethbridge Theatre and while I missed hick hop performer Big Smo at Average Joes, I was pleased to The Elwins rocking the Slice pop style.

But the dozen or so people who were there were into the show and dancing and having a heap of fun.

 They had a catchy, ’60s pop tinged sound reminiscent of bands like Said the Whale and Hey Ocean with a touch of Tokyo Police Club and some  of the Jayhawks' jangling alt country .
 There were perky keyboards and lots of dirty guitar playing and enjoyable vocals.
 They were mostly focusing  on their most recent CD “Play For Keeps.” They played an excellent version of their new single “So Down Low” and some slightly slower material.
 They were called back for an encore of a slower number and Beyonce’s “Countdown” for which they had the audience count down from 10 with them.
