Luckily, whenever Plaskett plays, he seemingly pours everything he has into every song. He was buoyant during opener "Through and Through and Through," the consummate rock god during "It's Catchin' On" (an essential for Regina, for the "I'll move out to Saskatchewan" line), and so electric during "You're Mine" that you might worry he'd tire himself out. He even did the CBC Kids version of "Fashionable People" on request, which went over huge.
A monster, medley version of "Work Out Fine" and the requisite "Nowhere With You" closer were pure showmanship from Plaskett and the band, but the real highlights of the set were a pair of new songs he played, one dedicated to a neighbour of his from Dartmouth, NS who'd passed away. It was all a reminder that Plaskett's not just an incredible performer, but a writer with plenty of honest work to put out there.
