Scarlet Canary: Setting the Example

 

In this industry, working together is the only way to survive. In order for that to happen, two people or groups of people need to unify and align with a common goal; easier said than done. In a time when hard work is taboo and ego powers are an industry, we always hear about “those artists”. You know, the bands that “take themselves seriously” and “work hard”. Then you have the artists that literally sacrifice their own time, comfort, and selves to be in this industry. Have you met Scarlet Canary?

To prove my point, I would like to take you to a show at the Bancroft on a cool San Diego fall evening in Spring Valley, CA. The Blondetourage tour was in town with Scarlet Canary and City of the Weak. After enjoying a warm Budweiser with The Beast next to Maggie Mounds, I learned again of what sacrifice, unity, and teamwork is really all about.

Due to tour vehicle troubles back in the Midwest, tour mates City of the Weak had to pull the plug. They called to Scarlet Canary and divulged the bad news. “We took their phone call very serious” said Hannah. “We pulled over and discussed what to do in the van for nearly an hour”, she added. Scarlet Canary collectively decided to turn around and go get City of the Weak; 7 hours in the opposite direction. They downsized and shared equipment, they very intimately shared space in an extremely cramped minivan, and found how hard it was to be cost effective with sharing hotel rooms and finding places to stay because they had now doubled their pack.

Both startup bands, City of the Weak and Scarlet Canary, put on a solid show considering the environment they chose to put themselves through. It seemed like both bands were in good spirits and seemingly having a great time translating to a fun environment for heavy music lovers. “This is probably the most fun tour I’ve been on”,  stated Rolltide before the show. It showed in Scarlet Canary’s performance and personalities.

Scarlet Canary displays leadership in an industry that lacks it. They set the bar for what it takes to be in this business and the sacrifice that comes with it. Scarlet Canary represents all that is good in rock ‘n roll musicians. I am proud they are a Dirtbag band and urge you all to check them out at a live show or on social media, itunes, and Spotify.
