Everything Was Zen @ Stir Cove


Saturday night, Gen X and the Elder Millennials alike gathered to celebrate 25 years of Our Lady Peace, Live & Bush. Several classic albums are turning 25 this year, but tonight was all about "Throwing Copper", the 3rd studio album from Live & "Sixteen Stone", the debut album from Bush. Our Lady Peace, the Canadian rockers that debuted in the States in 1995, kicked off the night. Coming out with a simple backdrop that just says the band name, singer Raine Maida brought his beautiful, flowing voice to entrance the crowd. The audience started the night hyped and OLP fed off that energy and played the hits everyone knows and a couple of songs that are not as familiar. If you are not familiar with Our Lady Peace, I would suggest checking out their 2nd album "Clumsy" to start. Maida is known for his poetic lyrics that still resonate to this day. The crowd sang along as they played "Superman's Dead", "Clumsy", "Somewhere Out There" & "Innocent". There was little chatter from the band, but they did stop to thank the crowd and other bands before their set ended.
