Mavericks Live at the Landing came alive Wednesday night for the Theory Of A Deadman show with opening acts Pop Evil and Aranda & Artifas.
Unfortunately I arrived after Aranda and Artifas had finished playing. But I am sure they Put on an amazing show if they had the same energy TOAD and PE did.
Pop Evil hit the stage with great energy and sounded amazing. They played many songs from the latest album “UP”, as well as crowd favorites such as “Trenches” which won the Radio Contraband Rock Radio Award for “Song Of The Year” in 2013. The Pop Evil guys riding the giant wave what have created from “UP”. The crowd really seems to be really getting into the music..raising the fist and rocking hard to songs like “Footsteps”, one of the bands more popular songs from the new album. All and all, they did what they can to do..help the crowd.. ROCK OUT!!
By the time Theory Of A Deadman hit the stage, the crowd had at least doubled and the house was packed. Their stage presence, lighting and sound were all top-notch. The opened with the hit song “Lowlife” and hammered through most of their radio hits as well a few other crowd pleaser. Lead singer and guitar player Tyler Connolly’s voice and guitar playing were flawless and didn’t disappoint.
Needless to say, these Canadians rocked and if you ever get a chance to see them live don’t miss out!
