Sneaks Review: Ten Second Epic

Edmonton, Alberta’s Ten Second Epic took over the stage at Sneaky Dee’s on November 22nd to perform to an enthusiastic and energetic crowd. The headlining act wooed fans with material from their three-album catalogue, playing songs from Count Yourself In, Hometown, and their latest effort, Better Off.

Ten Second Epic formed in 2002 and have kept up the momentum throughout their near decade career, with the release of a handful of albums and EPs, tours spanning the world, and nominations for MuchMusic Video Awards and Juno Awards. The five-piece mesh well on stage, with Andrew Usenik on vocals, Daniel Carriere and Craig Spelliscy both on guitar, Sandy MacKinnon on bass, and Patrick Birtles on drums.

The alternative pop/rock group played for nearly an hour, with their set list including fan favourites “Suck It Up, Princess”, “Count Yourself In”, “Every Day”, and “Welcome To Wherever You Are”. They also performed tracks from their September 2011 release Better Off, including “Young Classics” and “Northstar”, showcasing their progression over the years. We look forward to seeing their continued growth and are eager for to their return to Toronto!
