Hollerado play hit heavy set in smaller venue


Ottawa indie rock, pop band  Hollerado really need to be seen in a small venue to be fully appreciated.Hollerado bassist Dean Baxter at the Slice, June 16. Photo by Richard Amery
They returned to play a hot, sweaty hit heavy set at the Slice, Friday, June 16.

 As expected, considering they get played a lot on local radio stations, the show was sold out. And, also as expected, the audience was really in for a treat. there was plenty of leaping around, catchy ear-worm guitar hooks as well as massive groove and lots of good humour.

They opened with “Grief Money,” from their new Cd and crashed into older hits like “Americanarama” and hit their stride with “Eloise,” one of my favourites from their new CD “Born Yesterday.”

The single and title track was another highlight midway through in the set.

Just because they could, they made space on their set list to take a request from the crowd, which they played before winding things up before midnight with “Juliette” and “So it Goes,“ which had most of the room singing along.Little Junior at the Slice, June 16. Photo by Richard Amery

  Little Junior opened up the show with a solid set of up tempo pop punk reminiscent of Blink 182 an Sum 41
