Do512 Happy Hour at Cedar Door! The Canvas Waiting + The Lennings!
We were blown away by The Canvas Waiting when we saw them play at Momo’s back in September. No doubt the group rocks hard with full band. But for one of their residencies that month the guys made the executive decision to take it down a notch, and kick it acoustic style. As is the case with most concert-goers, this typically means I spend more time talking and less time listening. (Let’s be honest, you are the same way.) That’s definitely not what happened with The Canvas Waiting. That performance totally sold me on this band. Nathan Medina’s awe-inspiring vocal chops are completely showcased in the band’s acoustic set. That guy can straight up wail! In a very pleasant way, of course. Not to mention the undeniable skill level of the group as a whole. With Josh Rodgers on percussion and Colin Campbell on guitar, The Canvas Waiting truly comes together to create an intimate and sincere performance. And their songs are sincerely good!
Needless to say, I was so pumped to learn that The Canvas Waiting would play the Do512 Happy Hour at Cedar Door. Definitely give them a listen, and come hear them play on Tuesday. They’re going to kill it. Don’t miss it. Just don’t. Also, we got THE LENNINGS to play before The Canvas Waiting! Have you heard this local band yet? I saw them play back in early November at the Bleet-Up at The Mohawk and they are GOOD. Seriously, I’m listening through their Myspace right now – it’s a fantastic band. You have got to hear them. Check out the tracks they’ve got up, then come to the Do512 Happy Hour at the Cedar Door! Here’s a video for their song “Section C” –
Not only is the event rockin’ a sweet lineup, but we have some stellar specials for attendees as well. There’s 1/2 off ALL APPETIZERS, $3 off Cedar Door’s famous Mexican Martinis, $1.50 PBRs, and $2 Miller Drafts! I can’t think of a better way to wind down after the workday, can you? Meet me at Cedar Door Tuesday, February 23, at 7pm, and we’ll talk about it. Be sure to check out the event listing on Do512 for more details and to RSVP. See ya on Tuesday!
