Hey, Listen! Check These Guys Out: Cheap Date

By on January 16, 2014

This past weekend I took a little trip back to my high school days, in the best way possible. Cheap Date, an Oshawa based band, played at Rancho Relaxo last Friday, and they put on more of a party than a show. Playing to a packed house, this five-piece pop-punk band created an atmosphere that is unfortunately generally dismissed by most bands these days. Not only are these guys awesome musicians, but they’re the type of people you’d want to drink with. Their party anthem, loyally titled PBR, reminds me of Taking Back Sunday in their glory days. Cheap Date makes music that is not only super catchy (I find myself humming their songs around the house), but it’s the type of music you’ll want to blast at a party.

Currently in the process of recording an album, and with an east coast Canadian tour slated for February, this is certainly a band to keep your eye on. What these guys lack in age (with the average member’s age sitting at about 20), they make up for in energy and obvious potential for longevity. Even if this isn’t necessarily your type of music, the energy in the room when you see these guys live will put you in the mood to party. If you’re a fan of Blink 182, Taking Back Sunday or Four Year Strong, you need to check these boys out.
