CMW 2015: The Dead South, Shore Thing & Midday Swim


CMW 2015 stops for Friday May 8th, in reverse chronological order, The Dead South, Shore Thing & Midday Swim.

My final act for the night, The Dead South, at The Smiling Buddha, set time 9:30. I’ve been looking forward to these guys and they did not disappoint. The four piece band from Regina, Saskatchewan had the crowd move forward and listen up. There’s something about them that makes you pay attention. Crystal clear vocals, whistling and banjo. Win, win, win.

I first saw this band in Hamilton at the eOne/Gibson Juno party and loved them immediately. Check out The Dead South, they’ve become a regular part of my playlist with their album “Good Company“.

Shore Thing at Smiling Buddha, set time 8:45. This band from St. Catherines played a solid set. These poor guys had their van towed during load in. Lesson learned, Toronto parking signs are confusing!

They kept my attention and I’ll be looking for more from them. They’ve got some eastern Canadian dates coming up but they should too hard to track down in the GTA.
