CMW 2013 Live Review – Go For The Eyes
From: Calgary, AB
Style: White stripes meets Metric.Â Â Very melodic hard driving rock.
Memorable Moment/ Song: “This song is about saving up your money to fly to Toronto to see Radiohead and then the stage collapses” said singerÂ Elise Roller as she announced “October”.Â Â Â The song had heavy hooks, a solid breakdown, a tight bassline which broke into a solo run at one point.Â Â Â Â “October” had me bobbing my head back and forth, that’s a winner in my books!Â Â Â There was a moment when Elise drank a shot, stole the guitar from guitarist Jeff Turner and proceeded to use the empty shot glass to do her best Ben Harper impression, it’s amazing what you can do with a shot glass and a delay pedal.
Comments:Â I had the opportunity to meet fan Loryn Taggart who made a memorable comment to me:Â “one of the greatest rock shows I’ve ever seen!”.Â Also met Elise Roller and she was a first class act!Â I highly recommend you put Go For The Eyes on your must see list for 2013!
