Hailing from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, The Spill Canvas played at the Triple Rock a couple weeks ago. Playing an hour’s set, band members Nick Thomas, Joe Beck, Dan Ludeman and Landon Heil reawakened the raw appreciation for the grunge sound, with their suggestive yet explosive drums and bass guitar.
A slightly hypnotizing sound reminiscent of a gentle head massage, their music demonstrated an emotional depth and maturity intermixed with a romantic appeal especially in the stripped down acoustic songs.
Halfway through the show, opening band member Tyler Hilton joined the musicians on stage. Tyler sang with Nick Thomas, while Joe Beck, Dan Ludeman and Landon Heil goofed around, one of them suddenly appearing in a black raincoat, carrying an umbrella and a water gun. These boys have a good time on stage and it is reflected in their musical style. An engaging band with a positive message, perfect for an easy-going, warm summer night.
