Million Dollar Fix at Tipperary’s Pub – Show Review

Walking into Tipperary’s Pub is like stepping into the belly of an old ship: dark, slightly claustrophobic, and surrounded by wood. On Saturday night, much of this wood was due in part to the burlesque dancers and lingerie-clad waitresses who were there in support of the Alberta Cancer Society’s Underwear Affair. With all proceeds going to a good cause, admission was well worth the $10 ticket. An equally good reason to drop in on this show was to see rocking local band Million Dollar Fix.

Hailing from Calgary, the energetic group performed the middle set of the night, the juicy meat of a delicious rock burger. These three – Logan on guitar and vocals, Keegan on bass and vocals, and Jeff on drums – jumped on stage in a fit of energy. Looking like they stepped out of the sweet denim- and bandana-wearing days of the late ’80s and early ’90s, these guys looked and acted the part of true rockers.

They launched into their set with the explosive “Look Through Fire”. With heavy bass and loud drumming, the song was easy to follow and immediately got bodies moving. Fans of ’90s grunge will love Million Dollar Fix’s sound – they sounded like early Nirvana with a modern edge, sometimes adding in a bit of punk, metal, and their own sexyfunrock sound.

Although there were a few minor glitches – some mic feedback after the third song and a small cord malfunction – the band’s energy and enthusiasm made up for it. The venue wasn’t great for a show of this size, but Million Dollar Fix gave a fun, energetic, and amazing performance that kept the place jumping. If anything, these guys love to perform and were born to be on stage. If you get the chance to see Million Dollar Fix live, do it! They are definitely a band worth checking out.

Setlist:
Look Through Fire
The Condition Is Permanent
Wild Ladies
Painkillers
Surrender
Become a God
You’re Part Of This Now
Countdown to Midnight
