Released back in 1996, I Mother Earth‘s Scenery and Fish was on regular rotation that entire summer as part of my regular playlist. It was great to hear some of those songs live again as the band, reunited with Edwin, took the stage at the Algonquin Commons Theatre.

The night was a stroll back in time, hearing plenty of my favorites. I was delighted that the songs I most wanted to hear were all included in the setlist. Those songs included the opener, Not Quite Sonic, along with Earth, Sky & C, One More Astronaut, Rain Will Fall and Levitate.

The band’s encore saw them joined on stage by Finger Eleven and JJ Thompson for 3 more songs. The encore included Levitate, Finger Eleven’s Good Times, and a cover of Supertramp’s Bloody Well Right.

Prior to to the headliner’s fantastic set, Finger Eleven tore through their own set of hits to a delighted audience. JJ Thompson started the show off with an acoustic set which included a well received cover of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

It was another great show at Algonquin Commons Theatre, which has been bringing in a diverse set of quality music.
