The first opener was Toronto indie rock band Fade Awaays, who played an energetic set, which was well-received.
This was my second time seeing Goodbye Honolulu, and it was nice to see them on a big stage. Multi-talented, they share vocal duties and often trade off instruments between songs. They’ve been busy touring the U.S. and Canada over the last couple of years. They capped off their set with their most popular single, “Typical.”
Supporting their most recent EP, The Professional, The Beaches made a stop at the Bronson Centre Music Theatre last night.
The band wasted no time getting started, opening their set with the song “Snake Tongue.”
The band won Breakthrough Group of the Year at the Junos in 2018 and it’s easy to see why, as they have have well-crafted catchy songs and a dynamic live show.
Guitarist/keyboardist Leandra Earl does double duty while providing solid backing vocals.
The band is named after the Toronto neighbourhood where bassist/vocalist Jordan Miller and her sister, guitarist/vocalist Kylie Miller grew up.
Having been the opening act for the likes Glorious Sons, Passion Pit, and even The Rolling Stones, the band is currently headlining across Canada in support of their most recent EP.
The devoted fans who showed up early to score spots in the front row were definitely not disappointed by the band’s energetic and dynamic set.
Drummer Eliza Enman-McDaniel provides a solid foundation to The Beaches punchy hook-laden songs.
The band’s set included all five songs from their new EP, as well as older material from their previous two EPs.
