As someone who's always been heavily involved in the scene, I've been finding myself discovering artists outside of the "Alternative Press" era lately. One of my most recent discoveries has been The Hunna, just in time for their show in Toronto on September 7th.
I arrived at the venue not sure what to expect, and to my surprise, the line was not that long considering the show was completely sold out. That being said, it didn't take long for the venue to fill up.
The Hunna hit the stage full of energy and ready to wow the crowd. Opening with "We Could Be," I was impressed at how good they sounded live. I honestly preferred it over the studio version. Ryan Potter was spot on with his vocals while still rocking out and having fun. It took less than a minute to win over the crowd.
Next up was Barns Courtney, who was headlining the show. I wasn't sure if he would be able to keep up the energy after The Hunna, but he did not disappoint. Barns came out dancing as the crowd cheered to the chord of the first song. He did a great job of interacting with the crowd and keeping their eyes glued to him. I'd never listened to him before this show, but he has definitely gained a new fan.
