Supernova – Band on the Run – Edmonton, Alberta – June 9th 2006
Despite an edmonton oilers play off game, many fans actually showed up to watch us and the other six bands compete in Supernova’s Band on the Run (Battle of the Bands).
The guys and I got there right as the band “Incarnadine” started off the night with a short set. The fourth place winner “Black Burden”, a three-piece was next, they put on a good set. After that while we we’re busy in the back setting up a band called “Unbalanced” took the stage and gave the audience a good show. Next was the band who took home second place “Last Chance Hollywood”.
Third place winners “The Vanilla Villins” followed, but did so with ease despite technical difficulties. The winner of the night was “Living Illusion” (us), we got quoted as being “a talented and experienced 4-piece who’s musicianship impressed the crowd as well as other competing bands”.
We we’re followed up by “Our Wasted Youth,” a metal “Maiden Stlye” band with potential to make noise in the Edmonton scene.
Finally, the night was topped off with a performance by “The Set” a band from Victoria. Playing songs from their newest album, ‘The Philosophy of Time Travel’ the guys captivated audiences with their haunting-melodic rock.
It was great fun and twas nice to take a break from the hockey craze..
Happy and Fulfilled,
