July 28th, 2016 – Billy Talent play The Horseshoe as part of The Edge’s Secret Thing.

Shake  your inner 13-year-old awake. Billy Talent just played The Horseshoe.

Big band, smaller stage.  A few months ago The Lumineers played The Mod Club as a part of The Secret Thing, giving fans a chance to see a big band on a small stage. The catch? You have to win to get in and you don’t know who you’re seeing until they take the stage. A few weeks ago, 102 The Edge’s Fred and Mel made promise of a lifetime once again.

Eagerly, people came dressed in everything from high heels and mini dresses to worn Docs and trucker hats. The mishmashed crowd murmured on their way in, getting teased by the camera crew weaving throughout the front of The Horseshoe prodding for guesses.

No Peppers, but another throwback band. Billy Talent took the stage and jumped right into their set full of their previous hits, as well as, songs off of their newest album Afraid of Heights released Friday.DSC_0331They came, they played and they ignited the inner 13-year-old emo in all of us. Check out the photos from the show below.
