My sister is one of the most important people in my life. She is one of those special people who has a heart so large it seems almost impossible that she could care about others as much as she does. I admire her selflessness and commitment to make the world a better place. Her creativity and passion is inspiring. One thing we have always had in common is a love of music. This has brought us even closer, especially over the past year. As my number one concert buddy, I dedicate this post to her.
Reghann and I share a love of one band in particular, Half Moon Run. These guys are an indie band out of Montreal with killer pipes and a knack for getting under your skin in the best way possible with beautiful melodies and lyrics that cut to the core. We had the pleasure of seeing them live this summer in Montreal for Osheaga. They put on an amazing performance and seemed genuinely happy to play in their hometown. The audience was absolutely enthralled, despite a couple of hiccups with the audio (the sound was too damned quiet). One of my favourites is a song called She Wants You To Know. This song is a perfect example of the unique sound these guys put out. The tempo is upbeat and the instrumentals are heavy without falling victim to that angry tone you hear so often in alternative music. Everything about it is just right. If you like this, definitely check out Full Circle. You will not be disappointed.
