It’s amazing how fast time flies when you’re having fun, and when the Spill Canvas announced their 10 year anniversary tour for ‘No Really, I’m Fine’, I couldn’t believe that it had already been 10 years. LA was graced with a stop on the tour, and the iconic Roxy Theater on the Sunset Strip was sold out. The beauty of anniversary tours is getting to hear songs that are either rarely or never performed live.
Frontman Nick Thomas didn’t shy away from getting a bit personal, giving a bit of a back story to “Appreciation And The Bomb”, and the entire night was an emotional ride. The Spill Canvas’s songs are like a best friend; it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since visiting them, you always pick right back up where you left off, and it’s like no time has passed between. The audience belted out every lyric to all the songs, and many voices were lost Monday night.
Not only was the crowd treated to the entire album, but The Spill Canvas granted us an extra few songs during the encore, “Staplegunned” and “All Hail the Heartbreaker” off of ‘One Fell Swoop’ and ‘Sunsets and Car Crashes’, respectively.
It was a wonderful night spent with friends, new and old, filled with memories.
