With at least two of Good's regular mainstays in tow (guitarist Stuart Campbell and drummer Blake Manning), the atmosphere on the stage was loose. The band not only made things interesting for the audience, but for themselves too, by breaking "Load Me Up" in two, inserting "Carmelina" in the middle. At one point, Good even gave the drummer some, planting a kiss on Manning's cheek; Manning lit up a cigarette behind the drumkit mid song. The band may have lost count of how many times they've played "Born Losers" or "Alert Status Red" live, but their performances remained no less powerful or phoned in.
A middle section of the set saw Good turn to his Juno-nominated 2015 disc Chaotic Neutral, bringing the dynamic changes of the title track, the inspired instrumental breaks of "Cold Water" and "All Your Sons and Daughters" to life cleanly. Though the majority of the audience responded better to the hits, one would certainly be remiss to not dig into newer fare from Good and company.
