Boys Like Girls: Canada (Edmonton), November 1, 2007
The same instruments used on the album were used on stage, so the concert really was a live reproduction of the album.

Sound: The group sounded great! The lead singer was somewhat quieter than I would have expected, but they still sounded just as good as their recordings. The same instruments used on the album were used on stage, so the concert really was a live reproduction of the album. The Starlite is a tiny venue, so they sounded good from anywhere you stood. // 8

Perfomance: I definetly enjoyed them a lot! They interacted with the audience, chastising each other and at one point argueing over the outcome of the pervious night's video games with the opening groups. The lead singer was hilarious with his dialogue between songs. They played through every number off their "Boys Like Girls" album and each sounded very close to the album version. There were a few cool moments in "Heels Over Head" and "On Top of the World" with th eaudience really getting involved. // 9

Overall Impression: The show was located in the Starlite Room, Edmonton, Canada, on November 1, 2007. The opening acts were: Valencia, The Audition and All Time Low. Tickets were $20, and well worth the money. I loved almost everythign abou the show, it was a lot of fun. The atmosphere was great, and it was a relatively calm mosh pit, with less shoving and more dancing. I didn't like the Starlite Room itself, as there is an additional "membership cost" to get in the door, adn the staff were very pushy with advertisements for upcoming venues. It being an all-ages show, and myself being a minor, I have no comment about any alchohol being served. But I am definetly already excited to see them again, when they open for Avril Lavigne in at the Rexall Place in March. // 9
