Waters at North Park Theatre

North Park Theatre – San Diego, CA, USA – November 15, 2014

Review by Cynthia Duke

San Francisco Bay area band, Waters have been touring the past 6 weeks to promote their newly released EP, It All Might Be OK (October 14, 2014-Vagrant Records). Track listing of the four songs are: 1. Got to My Head, 2. I Feel Everything, 3. Over It and 4. Down Together.

Waters are frontman and guitarist, Van Pierszalowski, Brian DaMert, Greg Sellin, Andrew Wales and Sara DaMert. Van Pierszalowski is also the ex-frontman for bay area indie rock band, Port O’Brien.

Touring with Tegan and Sara, Waters hit San Diego’s beautiful, historic, circa -1939 restored North Park Theatre along with The Courtney’s, family to Tegan and Sara themselves. Waters took second slot after The Courtneys and proceeded to get the audience pumped up for the third and main attraction.

With flowers on all band members stations and an eight song set of old and new music, charismatic Van and company started the night’s high energy off while getting some air, jumping up and down and won the audience over with the catchy tunes from their EP and previous debut LP, Out in the Light.

Got to My Head was the second to the last tune in the set. Vans high pitched vocals and hooky chorus captured the audience priming them for the last tune of the set, I Feel Everything, in which Van coerced the audience into a vocal participation of the oh oh oh’s of the song…at the top of their lungs. A great set closer and energy boosting song.

Waters, It All Might be OK is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and their Website store now. Definitely worth the download as the tunes will get stuck in your head as Tegan and Sara later confessed to.

Waters also have two more tour dates with Tegan and Sara left in Tempe, Arizona and Los Angeles, California, then a date with Cold War Kids in Oakland, California. Catch them if you can.
