Cindy Davis concert Review | Show 1

Wow. Cindy and her band rocked the house last night at her first of two album release shows. Hil and I have always been a fan of her pop genius and have been looking forward to hearing Cindy play in a venue with a sound system capable of capturing her nuance and mood, and the Metro didn't fail.

The sound tech was bang on, the entire band* was dialed in, and Cindy herself was cool as a cucumber considering this was her first theater show and the culmination of over a year's worth of writing, recording and rehearsing.

She played every smoking track from her album, 2 unreleased songs, 1 arrestingly beautiful 3-week old song, and 2 well-chosen covers.

There's a lot more to say about the show, but I'll probably wait until after tonight's show (yup, we loved it so much we're heading right back tonight) to go into that.

If you've got the evening free and you're around Victoria, I'd suggest swinging by the Metro Studio Theater for 7:30. Full details can be found here.

You're also in for a treat from opening act Justin Hewitt whose got one of those voices that can hold an entire audience's attention wrapt from the first to last note of his set.
