Walking into the Canucks dressing room, Alex Bolduc isn’t the most vocal guy on the team but when it comes to the type of music he listens to, he likes it loud.
Seether and 3 Days Grace top his list of concerts in recent memory. He saw Seether in Winnipeg last year, when they visited the MTS Centre during last year’s playoff run in April and 3 Days Grace just this Christmas break back home in Montreal.
There’s one thing to listen to a band on the radio or on an iPod but going to a live show is a whole other thing. Bolduc can attest to this after seeing Seether perform their best songs.
“I liked Seether a bit before but really liked them after that concert,” he said. “I’d say Seether is more my favourite band now than 3 Days Grace.”
Seether is an alternative band from South Africa, with the hits Disclaimer and Broken (with Evanescence’s Amy Lee.
Bolduc had the opportunity to go home during Christmas and was lucky enough to catch 3 Days Grace live. Sometime it’s not just the music that plays a role in a good concert but as they say in real estate, it’s location, location, location.
“The last one was a small venue - there were only about two to three thousand people so just being that close was pretty awesome.”
“It was in probably one of the only arenas I’ve never played in Montreal. I’ve never even seen it before.”
For the record, the arena is called the Cepsum Stadium at the University of Montreal - home of the school’s sports facilities.
With 3 Days Grace in town performing at GM Place tonight, can you expect to see Bolduc there? No - the Canucks fly to Minnesota in the morning as the band takes over GM Place.
“It’s kind of a bummer but I know Lukowich is pretty good friends with them so hopefully I’ll get to meet him before we leave for the road.”
