If you missed out on going to Foodalicious this past weekend at Downsview Park, then you missed out of seeing two great bands. The first band was Oh Geronimo. Their set was filled with both fun and sad songs. The song “Souvenir” was a very personal letter to three of the band members who left to pursue other endeavors in music. When you really listen to this song, it is deep and comes from a very personal place. I haven’t met the new members, but they were certainly putting everything they had out there on stage. I think Oh Geronimo will have nothing but good things coming their way in the future.

The other band to hit the stage was Crown Lands. If you read any past articles you see I have nothing but pure respect for these two rockers. They came out like superstars and wowed anyone who has never seen them before. The played a couple songs from their “Mantra” Ep as well as trying some of their newer material on their up and coming new recording. The new sounds are heavier and more ambitious. I can’t wait until they release it. They finished off their set with Rush’s “Working Man”. Man, was that a great cover and a drum solo to boot. I think Cody Bowles owns a copy of Neil Peart’s, “Anatomy of a drum solo”.
