Saturday night, Gen X and the Elder Millennials alike gathered to celebrate 25 years of Our Lady Peace, Live, & Bush.  Several classic albums are turning 25 this year, but tonight was all about Throwing Copper, the 3rd studio album from Live

Live took the stage to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Throwing Copper, their 3rd and best known album.  The album brought the 90s Alternative classics Alone, Lightning Crashes, and All Over You.  All of those were played during their set as well as other fan favorites and lesser known gems.  Ed Kowalczyk and the rest of the band entertained the already bouncing crowd the whole time they were on stage.  Stopping to talk about the songs and how much it means to be celebrating 25 years as a band.  At one point before singing Heaven, a song written after the birth of his first daughter, Kowalczyk said between the 4 original members of the band, there are a total of 13 children.

They also paid tribute to a couple of bands that influenced them along the way.  First, Ed mentioned a little band out of Athens, GA named R.E.M.  You may have heard of them, they also have an album turning 25 this year.  The band then went into a beautiful version of Losing My Religion, encouraging the crowd to sing along, which we all gladly did.  The 2nd cover of the evening was a song that every band wishes they had written, Paint It Black; by the Rolling Stones.  Kowalczyk’s haunting vocals brought another level of beauty to an already amazing song.
