Ottawa played host to the Arkells on this leg of the #RallyCryTour. The Arkells are no stranger to the National Capital music scene having played many venues over their career like Algonquin College and Bluesfest.
Lord Huron – based out of LA opening the night with a full length set including some of their most noted tracks “Fool of Love” and “The Night we met”. Just to add that little touch of uniqueness they even played a Theremin.
Once the Arkells took the stage their front man Max Kerman wasted no time getting the crowd involved and letting everyone know the Arkells show rules.Sing along, Dance and Look out for each other. The band set up a request hotline to allow fans to help make the play list for the nights of the shows they were going to. The crowd got to sing along to songs like “Blueprint” of the Jackson Square album and even a karaoke rendition of “Only for a Moment”.
If you weren’t a fan of the Arkells before, seeing them live would certainly help change your mind with an energetic performance and some intimate moments connecting with the crowd.
