The recent drop in temperature in Winnipeg, plus the recent snowfall wasn’t stopping fans from coming out to see some of their favourite bands perform on a Tuesday night. The show was opened up by the debuting local band, Nice Cops. Nice Cops delivered a fun set full of powerful and catchy pop-punk tunes.
The second band of the night was Cedar Green hailing from Philadelphia, PA. They sure did get the crowd railed up for Seaway and Silverstein. The band stood out boldly on stage because of vocalist, Joey Volpe’s brightly coloured shirt full of flowers. Cedar Green played another solid set of pop-punk.

Canada's own, Seaway was the next to perform. The pop-punk band opened their set up with their hit, "Slam," from their second album, Colour Blind, before performing a few new tunes for the Winnipeg crowd. Seaway seemingly knew what the audience wanted to hear.
Seaway is currently on the road touring their recently released third album, Vacation. Vocalist Ryan Locke before their set came to an end, was sure to inform the crowd that the band will be back again in the Spring. Lastly, Silverstein, also hailing out of Canada, are currently on the road touring their ninth studio album, Dead Reflection. Which was released this past July. Silverstein belted out fan favourites such as, "Bleed No More," "Your Sword Versus My Dagger," "Ghost," and "My Heroine," to name a few of many. Plenty more songs on Tuesday night’s setlist sure pleased the crowd. The band tried to perform something off every one of their previous releases while playing some new ones. The one that stuck out most to me was, "The Afterglow." Silverstein is about to go on their eighteenth year as a band, have proved that they’re here to stay and that there’s much more to come from them in the future.
Silverstein will almost immediately be hitting the road again after their current North American tour to return to the UK to end the year off. At the beginning of 2018, they have a big tour lined up with Tonight Alive, Picturesque, and Broadside of the United States.
