I always love an excuse to go to the city, and rock shows are my favourite kind of excuse. The venue, Marquee Beer Market & Stage, is top notch. I mean, the place has four bars, serves food, has a fantastic stage and lighting set-up, and huge dance floor. Oh, and I can’t not mention the giant disco ball and microphones hanging from the ceiling. This place is a good times factory.

“When I got divorced, I went and saw a therapist and the first thing she said was, ‘I want to put you on some Beta blockers or some sort of anti-depressant stuff’ and I’m like, ‘No! No Way! What? How is that the first thing you want to do?’” front man Tyler Connolly said in an interview with Billboard. “I just feel like something’s wrong and I felt like the song needed to be written and people needed to hear it,” he added.
“Wake Up Call” is Theory of a Deadman’s sixth studio album and a follow-up to 2014’s “Savages.” The band has had several radio hits, such as “Bad Girlfriend,” “Lowlife,” “So Happy” and “By the Way,” and “Angel” and “Drown” from the 2014 album.
Theory of a Deadman features Tyler Connolly (lead vocals, lead guitar), David Brenner (rhythm guitar), Dean Back (bass) and Joey Dandeneau (drums).
