Kate Miller-Heidke, Pre-Canaday Party

Happy 143rd, Canada, it’s your birthday!

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of seeing Kate Miller-Heidke on her first North American tour at Habitat. Her first time in Kelowna, she performed an acoustic set and didn’t know what to expect really. I have her album where she has a full band and was expecting a more laid-back show, but that wasn’t the case at all. Miller-Heidke’s stage presence coupled with her unreal vocal range annihlated all my expectations for the night. From the moment she took the stage she owned the room, roaring laughter to emotional high-school nostalgia within three songs. There was even an operatic ‘Toxic’ cover which I’m sure you can find on YouTube somewhere…

Between Kate, her opener (Vancouver local, Jody Glenham) and a pint of my favourite Tree Brewing Raspberry Porter, it was a perfect pre-Canada Day opener, now onto the long weekend! If you have nothing going on, City Park is going to be buzzing today. Bands like Poor Little Rich Girl, Fields of Green, DFY and more! Or check out DJ Sticky Buds tonight at Cush! Mayhaps we’ll run into each other!
