Matthew Good took the stage to an eagerly awaiting audience for his second of three shows at Danforth Music Hall. The night was filled with hits from his entire career, including several songs off his latest album, Chaotic Neutral, and many from his early days with the Matthew Good Band (who broke up in 2002). He really knows how to own the stage, playing wicked guitar solos, and even jumping in the crowd to sing amongst his fans, Matt truly knows how to keep all eyes on him. For anyone not watching him though, the 1927 silent film Metropolis was being projected onto the side walls of the venue, while Good’s music provided the soundtrack.
Many of the biggest fans had been at Danforth the previous night for the Canadian Rock hero’s first show of the run. Why see your favourite band just once when you can be treated to musical hat trick, right? The setlists did vary a bit between the first two nights, to keep things fresh for the band and those lucky enough to snag tickets to all three nights. Almost every song had a huge sing-along and everyone left with a huge smile on their face. Maybe Toronto will be lucky enough to havee Matthew back for five nights in a row next time he’s in town!
