Review: Descendents Live in Calgary

Friday 12th, May 2017 / 11:23

CALGARY – On Saturday night MacEwan Hall held the mother of all shows, hosting the legendary punk band Descendents for tightly packed house of screaming fans.

Opening for the Descendents were Edmonton post-punk heavyweights Choke and local punks The Shiverettes. Both bands offered their own unique and stellar performance, revving up the crowd for headliner.

When the Descendents graced the stage, they were met with an eager crowd; front man Milo Aukerman unleashed 1996 fan-favourite, “Everything Sux” (from the album of the same name) and the crowd went off in a frenzy. The hits continued throughout their 90-minute set; “Clean Sheets,” “Myage” and “Suburban Home” were just a few of the songs from the wide variety on the two-page set list that evening. The band performed in peak condition, Stevenson sat grinning behind the shadow of his drum kit as if having the time of his life, while Alvarez and Egerton slayed it on bass and guitar respectively, and naturally Aukerman had the audience eating out of his hand. They took a moment to apologize for distance between shows: their last gig in Calgary was almost 30 years ago. Then repaid the crowd with the classic hit off Everything Sucks, “Thank You,” then topping it all off with a couple of encores.

For the packed hall of fans, Saturday was a night they’ll never forget. The Descendents made many dreams come true and everyone in attendance was grateful for the Calgary date. So, thank you, Descendents for playing the way you play.
