The Damn Truth @ Arcadia Blues Club – 03/09/2018
Oh, Canada indeed! Montreal’s own up-and-coming blues-infused rockers, The Damn Truth, made a stop on their first ever (and definitely not last) United States tour at the Arcadia Blues Club, a cozy little joint tucked away in Arcadia, CA. These guys were a breath of fresh air, and a blast from the past all at the same time, donned in bell bottoms, and plenty of sixties inspired swag!
One thing that really stood about The Damn Truth at first glance was not their clothing, but rather their approachability. Before the show started, they went up and talked to several groups of patrons that were starting to trickle into the venue. They made sure to introduce themselves, and even showed a couple of fans their instruments. The next thing you notice about them is that they could not have chosen a more perfect singer. Lee-la has an angelic and raw voice akin to that of the one and only Janis Joplin. She truly shined on stage, and in fact, everyone’s energy was contagious. As the band played, the audience started dancing, and soon the dance floor was crowded.
Even though this was The Damn Truth’s first time in the United States, this was not the last we have seen of them. They are set to play the world famous Whisky A Go-Go on March 14th, and then they will continue their journey across the country. This is an act that is perfect for a fun night out!
