Inside the (almost) secret July Talk show

January 18th, 2017 – Leah Fay during July Talk’s performance for Mohawk College’s  Frost Week in Hamilton.

A small stage, an epic band and a show to remember. Yes, there was a July Talk show. Did you miss it? We’ve got you covered.  july-talk_-26If you’ve never had school envy, you might now. The addicting, enthralling, July Talk sold out Mohawk College this week during an event exclusively for students. The crowds at the band’s shows get larger as their stature grows. Coming off, of the four month tour, the intimate show gave fans a rare look at the rising band.

The line began hours before the show for fans to claim front row. Once the lights dimmed, the band didn’t disappoint anyone in the room. Their high energy songs off of their two albums claimed the crowd. Once a slower number, I’ve Rationed Well, began a drawn out guitar riff brought Fay into the crowd. Returning to the stage with a fan, who had slightly too much to drink, the band asked her to perform the next song with them.

“Do you know the next song,” Fay asked.

“My Guns and Ammunition,” the fan began. Though, that wasn’t next on the setlist.

“We already played that one sweetie. Where were you?” Fay said. With glossy eyes and a nervous smile, the fan took the mic in her hands and began Guns and Ammunition again. Continuing on, the set enveloped the room into a hair thrashing, gasping, sweaty scene July Talk in known best for.
