Yukon Blonde Through the Lens At Soda Bar

Yukon Blonde

Yukon Blonde played Soda Bar July 17

On Jul. 17, Vancouver BC’s own Yukon Blonde played San Diego County’s Soda Bar. With overcoming sound check issues, Yukon Blonde played an overall strong performance. Although it being my first time seeing this Indie Pop band and being at this venue, when they started playing I could clearly see why they had their own followers and understand how they were nominated for a Juno award, which is Canada’s version of the Grammy’s.

In support of Yukon Blonde’s latest release “On Blonde,” they opened up with the first track “Confused” and played the majority of their new release throughout the night. My highlight of the night’s performance was them playing “Favourite People,” their upbeat song with a great bass line from James Younger, and clean 12-string guitar from Brandon Scott.

As they continued, everyone was out of their seat standing in front of the stage. Being a smaller venue, it was hard to move around and get better shots while remaining courteous to the fans. Overall, both the show and the staff were great. With a few albums under their belt, I can totally see Yukon Blonde playing Coachella in the near future.
