Review: Skate4Cancer

It was a very cold Sunday evening down at Confederation Park.
The free all ages event was called Skate4Cancer, where it was organized by Rob Dyer and spreading the message about finding a cure for cancer.

Also there was music and playing there was:
Steve St.Pierre (who usually plays in the band Anchors)
The Love Machine
Brighter Brightest

First up was Steve and he sang some of his solo.
It was a nice settling with him and his guitar.
He sang a cover of MGMT’s Kids which was amazing to listen to.

After him was the Love Machine.
I never got to hear them live acoustically.
They were amazing doing it without the electric instruments and drums.
Shows that they can really belt out their own tunes acoustically.
Sang Squirrels, Love Is On Your Side, Amos the Transparent cover and a new song.
Great performance.

Finally it was the Brighter Brightest from Aurora.
It was only two members that played acoustically.
Sang mostly from their EP.
They were great live with just their guitars.
If they come back to Ottawa, I would like to see the whole band play live.
I bought their EP and did get to ask them if they know fellow Aurora mates Ruby Coast which they know greatly.

Overall it was nice intimate and cold event in the park.
I wish they should do more of these events during the summer.
