Mark Mills Live Dec.13th 2014

On Saturday afternoon my Cuz and I were out and about walking Whyte Avenue here in Edmonton when we come across this shows poster outside The Buckingham. The show was for that afternoon, what a great way to wind down the afternoon then some live music and beers. Glad we were walking on that side of the street or I would never have known about this show.

I was stoked about getting to see Calgary artist Mark Mills perform again, as I had seen him in Calgary in the summer as part of the Sled Island Festival and he was awesome. I've been looking forward to catching his live performance ever since.

Well this afternoon show was a blast too. Mark Mills combines electro dance beats with great lyrics, often being down right hilarious. Mark also bring out the guitar once in a while to play along with his programmed beats. The man has got lots of energy and his interaction with the audience is priceless, with him crawling all over the tables and benches, wandering the bar singing and dancing with and to everyone. His dancing is worth checking out in itself and he performs like he is playing to a full stadium. He played songs from his two albums "Go Love Yourself" and "Triple Fire Sign". Even though there wasn't a very big crowd for this show, that certainly didn't stop Mark from putting on a great show. He is one very entertaining performer. You can't help but have a good time at his shows.

As for The Buckingham as a venue, what a cool fucking place, great vibes, good crowd and awesome staff. This is a place I could find myself going to more often, even just to hang out and have a few beers. Great place. Good times!!!
