Big Wreck let the music do the talking as they played to a sold out Ottawa crowd at the Algonquin Commons Theatre on Saturday night. With little dialog throughout most of the show, the band played In Loving Memory Of… in it’s entirety. By the second song, the band had the crowd firmly in it’s grasp as they sang along with Ian for That Song.

Other highlights for me included Blown Wide Open, Waste and Between You and I. The band closed off their set with the album’s lead track The Oaf, before taking a short break.

The crowd erupted as the band came back for a short encore featuring Albatross, Digging In (off their most recent album Grace Street) and Come Again.

Earlier in the evening, Attica Riots did a fine job opening up the show with an entertaining set of their own. I have no doubt that the performance gained them some new fans in Ottawa. Check out their latest album Love Sunshine & Hysteria for yourself.
