The Sarnia music scene is unbelievable. For a city our size (73,000), we bring in some great bands and the people in Sarnia are awesome. Tonight was Empty Spaces 19th show and it was excellent. The two local opening acts were excellent (Kirk Ramsey and Katie Moran). The two bands that came from Toronto blew my mind; Donlands and Mortimer with The Wilderness of Manitoba Both were full of excellent music, with obviously brilliant musicians. They were tight, exciting and really drew in the crowd. The Sarnia crowd knows how to love on a band. Dance a lot and give them encores, even if you never heard of the band before. Seriously, bands from out of town absolutely love playing at Empty Spaces shows because of the reception they get from the crowds of people that have never heard of them. If you get a chance, go listen to both those bands. Here are some of my favourite pics I took from throughout the night.
