I Forgot The Sadies

A few days ago, I posted my list of the best concerts in Vancouver in 2010. The year is long and with a lot of shows seen I naturally forgot one, and the funny thing is it was probably the best all round show of the year.

The thing is, I didn’t have my camera with me. The show was actually before I bought my Canon 5d Mark II, and I didn’t pack my G11. Without a photographic record of it, the concert sort of slipped from my memory.

Often called the best live band in Canada, The Sadies stopped by Vancouver’s Legendary Biltmore Cabaret in early June. By the end of the almost four hours of music I’m surprised the place had a roof left on it.

To this day I find listening to The Sadies on album a bit uninspiring. It just doesn’t do that much for me. When these guys get on stage it’s like setting a fire. At a gas station. With a dynamite truck filling up at the time. I frankly thought they were never going to stop playing.

So, to Mike and Sean and Dallas and Travis, my sincere apologies for leaving you off the first list. It wasn’t intentional, and I’ll blame a memory which relies on a camera as often as not. I’ll be there next time right at the front of the stage.
