The Spill Canvas @ The Hi Hat

Posted on

This was the second time I have seen The Spill Canvas. They were just as exuberant and polished as the last time. Nick Thomas (the lead singer) was forthcoming about mental health struggles, the death of his mom, and love of his wife (who was present offstage), which made the show unique in its vulnerability. It’s hard to discuss topics like that in public openly without making everything a downer, but he managed it well. Nick’s charisma and amazing voice made the more than two hours of hits fly by.

The venue itself is a really nice spot. It is large and open with food available, and beer and wine. We grabbed a giant can of Golden Road Wolf Pup and sat in the corner on some stury leather couches for the duration of the show. We had a perfect view of the stage and the sound quality was decent.
