The Spill Canvas are opening their current “Part of the Hive Tour” with two fan favorites: “The Tide” and “All Over You.” Watch the band perform both songs live from their stop at the Middle East in Cambridge, MA on August 3, 2018. I shot and edited the footage with additional filming by Brandon Marc Powers and Sam Swider.
Last week, I saw The Spill Canvas play in New York. This is a band whose albums Sunsets and Car Crashes and No Really, I’m Fine had a profound impact on shaping my musical tastes during my youth. This show got me thinking a lot about the infrastructure of band reunions, and how the typical life cycle of bands seems completely foreign to me in this era of music consumption. The show itself was astounding, and I’ll talk about it more later, but it definitely made me ponder a variety of questions about the life-cycle of a band in the hours and days after the show.
