Waterbodies, or “That Time I Went To Silver Dollar and Didn’t Hate My Life”

I was recently introduced to a super sick band called Waterbodies, and because of how much I enjoy their music I didn’t even cringe when I found out their show was at the Silver Dollar here in Toronto (…well, not too much, anyway). Cringeworthiness aside, I did indeed venture out to the almighty Dollar, and a great time was had by all, EVEN me!

Out of all the music venues in Toronto, I wouldn’t go as far as to say I hate any of them.  That being said however, I would certainly go as far as to say that I would prefer to not go to the Silver Dollar. But go I did, and for my trouble Waterbodies made sure I had an absolutely kick ass time, and truly I loved every minute of it.  These guys are rad as hell, and definitely know how to put on a show. You actually enjoy watching them play, because they clearly love what they’re doing up there. They can play and sing live incredibly well, which one would assume is standard practice in the music industry.  But unfortunately that isn’t always the case. Their latest single “What the French Call ‘Les Incompétents'” (one of several recently recording songs the band has yet to unleash on the world) is an absolutely amazing track, which I happily watched them nail live on stage. The rest of the crowd was clearly as into it as I was, since they seemed to know all the words, and most of them scattered once Waterbodies had vacated their place in front of their eyeballs.

Basically, if you like music you need to check out Waterbodies. They’re from St. Catharine’s, but we won’t hold that against them. Yes, they’re that good.
