Sneaky Dee's, Toronto, ON, November 25
Opening their set with "Head in the Ceiling Fan," the single from their latest record Floral Green, proved that although it was a slower tune, it did not mean the crowd had any intentions of keeping it low key. The band mixed up the set with new and old tunes, which, of course, proved to be the real crowd pleasers.
It was surprising to see that vocalists Jamie Rhoden and Ned Russin could keep the mic to themselves, seeing as basically everyone in the audience was screaming the lyrics word for word. Floral Green songs like "Secret Society" and "Like a Ritual," as well as older cuts like "Symmetry" and "Shed," became outright anthems.
The last time Title Fight were in Toronto, they were on the Vans Warped Tour, and they played the Molson Amphitheatre. So it was a big change to see them play in a significantly smaller venue; it was almost nostalgic.
The night was polished off with "27," from their record Shed, marking the moment the crowd truly went crazy as the whole venue became a sweaty mess of a mosh pit. Title Fight definitely gave the crowd one to remember, reminding you just how good live shows can get.
