October 23rd, 2009. The Grawood, Dalhousie University
Fellow Concert goers: David Marsh, Joelle Grant, Sagar Jha
Headliner: Hey Rosetta!
Supporting: Oh No Forest Fires
This show was part of Dalhousie's annual Fall Fest. The opening band Oh No Forest Fires had both guitar players break strings during their set which featured energetic guitar based songs and swaying bodies that looked like they were on a collision course. Their singer is the brother of Romesh, the cello player in Hey Rosetta!
By now you know the drill, I love Hey Rosetta! I go to as many shows as possible, take a bunch of pictures, and enjoy it. So I won't write a long review. The show was great, the crowd was great singing along with every song, not just the "hit singles". They played a trio of new songs, Seeds, Glass, and Allagash. I had a great conversation with Tim Baker after the show, talking about if the shows are still good even though I've seen them so many times, talking about the new album, and new songs. There are videos of Glass and Allagash below.
