For Tonight play with pop music

E-mail Print PDF

Edmonton’s For Tonight entertained an intimate audience at the Slice, July 28. I was looking forward to seeing a southern rock/ punk band, as they described themselves, but the reality was a little different.

For Tonight playing the Slice, July 28. Photo by Richard Amery They played a solid set of upbeat, piano powered  pop music with falsetto voices and perky vibes which sounded like a blend of Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran and a touch of Simple Plan as well as Kaleo, who they covered.

They covered a variety of music including  Johnny Cash’s “ Folsom Prison  Blues” and psyched the audience out with a few bars of “Cocaine Blues,” before segueing into Blink -182’s “ All The Small things.”

 They added a few of their original power pop/ pop punk originals  and showed their more R and B side on a beautiful cover of “Stand by Me.”
