Thursday night (still in Hamilton with my newly handicapped thumb) I checked out “The Sadies”. They are an indie band that has been getting a lot of press here in Canada. Despite the press, I listed to a few if the examples of their work on YouTube and did not find anything that remarkable about them. Still, I LOVE live music and thought I would splurge on an $18 ticket.
I gotta say, I was LUCKY! No one will be seeing The Sadies with an $18 ticket soon. They gave the most powerful performance I have seen since catching Jeff Healey in the early 1990′s. They are brilliant!
I tried finding some more video of them so that I could give them another listen and I found a video which (in my opinion) does not justice (to their profound greatness). Even so it is applicable to the tiny house movement and its anti consumer message so I thought I would share it with you. Note the part when Blue Rodeo is speaking about this song’s ideology… but then, basically they laughingly display that money does not trickle down. Interesting I thought…
Nothing to do with the tiny house movement but rather just a great video… Here is their Juno Award winning film of a song that will be on their new album (soon being released). Also this is the sound and at least in part, captures them.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of video that shows the energy of this band. Each of the four musicians personality and love of music is diverse. If these guys are coming within a few hundred kilometres of you, run… and I mean run to get tickets!
