I’m always happy to support Steamwhistle and their Unsigned events. For their 22nd edition they had The Wilderness of Manitoba, Cai.RO and Amos the Transparent.
Opening up the night was Cai.Ro who I wasn’t as familiar with. They sung some orchestral folk-pop that illustrated stories of young love. There already was a decent size audience even though it was just the beginning of the show.
Second was The Wilderness of Manitoba. I swear every time I see them they have a different female member. I think I’d like them more without all the distortions and pedals, especially on the violin.

Amos the Transparent have grown a lot since I’ve seen them 2 years ago during NXNE on a 2am time slot at C’est What. Their set was fun and their friends jumped in on one of the songs.
