The strange on and off again rain did not dampen spirits of the crowd waiting to see Social Distortion and Dave Hause. When the doors opened and most were in Chris Devotion & The Expectations took the stage (and they certainly did that). Opening with "If You Want To Leave," poking a little joke at the fact no one, bar a few of their own fans, knew who they were, the band acknowledged it would take some work. By the third song "I Need Your Touch," it was clear this was a well schooled, tight, energy-driven band. "When The Girl Comes To Town" is a great feel good song with let's go attitude that was well delivered and started to get the crowd going. Throughout the 30-40 minute set you could see the crowd being surprised to see such an accomplished band soaring through their songs. A cover of Woody Guthrie's "I Ain't Got No Home" fit their set list and was a nice touch as well. The fire these four have is inspiring and captivating. I for one will definitely be seeking out this band's debut album, Amalgamation and Capital. They deserved a better response than what they got but when you're an opening act this can be the hurdle. The band did not seem undeterred or scared of this at all. This four-piece would do well as a support to any rock band.
