Show Pony followed with a set that was equally electrifying, blending alternative rock with a touch of grunge and pop sensibility. Songs like "Celebration," "Cincinnati," and "Guided" had the audience dancing and singing along, setting the stage for the headlining act. I have seen Show Pony a handful of times now around the city, and every time they hit the stage, they get better and better with every performance.

As DZ Deathrays took the stage, the energy in the room reached a fever pitch. The Australian rock trio, consisting of vocalist and guitarist Shane Parsons, drummer Simon Ridley, and guitarist Lachlan Ewbank wasted no time diving into their setlist, which was a mix of old favourites and tracks from their latest album, R.I.F.F. They kicked things off with "Blood On My Leather," setting the tone for a night of high-octane rock.

Tracks like "In-To-It," "Tuff Luck," and "Like People" opened up their set and had the crowd dancing and singing along, creating an electric atmosphere that lasted throughout the night.

As the night came to a close, DZ Deathrays ended on a high note with "Shred For Summer," leaving the audience wanting more. Overall, the R.I.F.F Canadian Tour stop in Winnipeg was a night to remember, with three bands delivering unforgettable performances that left the crowd exhilarated and wanting more.
