Homeless in Hawaii bring back the lighter side of the ’90s


The Slice had a big night of punk and power pop, Saturday, May

18. I only caught one band, who ended up being Calgary’s Homeless in Hawaii and was really impressed if only because I loved that the frontman Tanner Cyr had a speckled silver Gretsch guitar just like mine.Homeless in Hawaii at the Slice, May 18. Photo by Richard Amery
 They played a really tight set of mid ’90s style power pop along the lines of the Lemonheads and Gin Blossoms and a touch of Jimmy Eat World, but also added a funky groove and plenty of hot guitar solos, through a set of mostly original music that had my toes tapping.  Cyr put his Gretsch to good use on a solid cover of Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love.”
