CMW Critical Conclusions for…The Maladies of Adam Stokes (Canadian Music Week 2015 concert review)
Thursday night at Canadian Music Week brought a lot of bar hopping. First on the bill was The Maladies of Adam Stokes.
Venue: Velvet Underground
First Impression: That’s a small stage for 6 people!
Stage Presence: For 6 people on a small stage, they sure moved around a lot.
Crowd Reaction: It was 9pm, so not a huge crowd, and they were very quiet. It reminded me of the quiet crowd in the Simpsons at Hullabalooza.
Random Observation: PHM contributor Kristina liked the female keyboardist’s shirt, while I thought the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club shirt that another band member was also pretty cool. PeteHatesFashion, coming in 2016?
Last Word: 7.5/10. Good strong vocals and a horn (was that a cornet?) made for a nice set. A good band to throw on at the cottage.

For spotty coverage of Canadian Music Week 2015 and other general awesomeness a) “follow PeteHatesMusic on Twitter” and b) “Like PeteHatesMusic on Facebook“, and you too can pretend you’re at Canadian Music Week.
