Hey Rosetta! Setlist
Yukon Blonde's set
This time they played a set mostly from their new album, On Blonde, which is quite different from their earlier material. It adds dance beats and has fewer vocal harmonies. It is dynamic and dancey, and feels much less retro than their earlier material, especially their first album. They were well received, by both their fans and those new to the band. They played for 45 minutes, including 7 songs off their new album, 2 songs off their 2012 album Tiger Talk, and one song from their first full length self-titled album released in 2010.
Hey Rosetta!'s set
Since the 7-piece band (featuring Tim Baker, Phil Maloney, Adam Hogan, Josh Ward, Romesh Thavanathan, Kinley Dowling and Mara Pellerin) is currently celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary as a band, this current tour served somewhat like a "Greatest Hits" tour, drawing heavily on their most recent release, 2014’s Second Sight (7 songs), but included tracks from all their albums. There were 3 songs from their previous release 2011’s Seeds, 3 from their 2008 release Into Your Lungs, 1 from their first full length release 2006’s Plan Your Escape, and 1 from their holiday EP A Cup of Kindness Yet.
Their set was a representative display of their beautiful multi-instrument anthemic chamber pop. Their band members played a variety of instruments including cello, violin, keyboards, and xylophone-like instruments, as well as drums, and electric guitars and bass.
Hey Rosetta! recently unveiled a new music video for "Trish's Song", taken from their latest album Second Sight. You can watch it on vimeo.com. The video shows singer Tim Baker alone with a piano, but slowly featured backup vocals from various band members.
Overall the Triple Rock Social Club show was a fine concert by two Canadian bands that each deserve far larger followings.
