Come on out to Amsterdam Bar & Hall in Saint Paul to celebrate all of your Black Friday finds with The Spill Canvas on Friday, November 29th.
The Spill Canvas initially began as a solo project for singer-songwriter and guitarist, Nick Thomas. The South Dakota native wrote, performed and produced his first widespread album, Sunsets & Car Crashes, released by 111 Records in 2004. After which, the act officially transitioned into a four-piece band, later recording their dynamic full-length debut, One Fell Swoop, in 2005 alongside producer, Ed Rose (The Get Up Kids). In 2006, The Spill Canvas signed to Sire Records, releasing their major label debut, No Really, I’m Fine, in 2007. Produced by Neil Avron (Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard, The Wallflowers), the album climbed to No. 2 on Billboard’s Heat Seekers chart with the single, “All Over You.” After a departure from the label and a short hiatus, the band self-released Gestalt, with the single “To Chicago” reaching number one on PureVolume. With much anticipation, the band has jumped back into the studio, releasing their first new music in five years, a three-song collection, Hivemind, this July.
Almost as exciting as getting to see The Spill Canvas again, The Juliana Theory will be opening up the show with an acoustic set. If that band name isn’t a blast from the past for you then maybe you don’t understand but trust me when I say you need to check these guys out. Western Pennsylvania quintet the Juliana Theory transformed themselves from an emo-rock outfit into a full-fledged arena rock group in the span of their original, decade-long run. Unlike other contemporaries, their songs displayed dynamics, skill, and attention to melodious detail, experimenting with electronic atmosphere.
Cory Wells will be kicking the night off. Cory Wells is an American singer and song writer from sunny Southern California who wears his heart on his sleeve. With songs about heart break, tragedy and angst; Cory combines all his raw emotion into beautiful haunting melodies. Being a fan of bands such as Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional and more, Cory blends all his unique influences into his own blend of acoustic emo revival.
