Wolfmother: Canada (Winnipeg), February 27, 2008
The audience was a little bit reluctant after hearing the opening band, but Wolfmother's set was sure to please.

Sound: Opening band The Icarus Line came out fierce instrumentally but vocals were hard to listen to. Once Wolfmother came on it was a different story though, punctuated by Andrew Stockdale's invigorating vocals as well as his guitar skill; this whole concert was a gem that could have been recorded for a Live album. // 9

Perfomance: The audience was a little bit reluctant after hearing the opening band, but Wolfmother's set was sure to please. Playing favorites such as Woman, Joker and the Thief, and White Unicorn to name a few; the audience was right into this concert singing along at almost every song. During Woman, an almost 20 minute jam session ensued leaving the crowd in awe of this young band's talent. Lighters were a'many during White Unicorn, their most recognized ballad. Something amazing happened in the section me and my friends were sitting in, everyone got along and lost themselves in the music; by the end of the show we were all acting like we'd known eachother for years after watching this amazing show at a very intimate venue. // 10

Overall Impression: The show took place on February 27th, 2008. The opener was The Icarus Line. I loved everything about the show to be completely honest. Tickets were about $30 CD, which is well worth it as this is probably the last time a Wolfmother ticket will be that cheap. Most unforgettable moment was everyone in our section passing a joint around and just enjoying a good time in a venue that looks very old, creating a very nostalgic feeling. I would definitely go to the next concert if they were to come to Winnipeg or Regina again. // 10
