The Moose Hall went back to the ”90s with Calgary based pop punk band Downway, June 3.

 They were all the rage in the ’90s and early 2000s before breaking up. But they are back together after a  several year hiatus, and have barely missed a beat in that time and scarcely looked as if they‘ve aged a day.

They started  off their set slowly, but soon  found their foundation and picked up steam with a solid set of short , fast bursts of catchy  and hyperactive pop punk along the lines of Blink 182 and Sum 41 with just a touch of Gob.

 They had a heap of energy with plenty of leaping around. Unfortunately less than 20 people were there to see the show. I missed opening sets from Chief Mountain and fellow Calgarians The Foul English.
