the standstills

Commodore Ballroom – Vancouver

Oshawa natives The Standstills returned to Vancouver last night to open the show for Sebastian Bach on the latest stop of his Home Away from Home tour.  Jonny Fox (guitars and vocals) and Renée Couture (drums), who have been performing together since 2008, put on solid show, treating the crowd to track from across their catalog, including their last release From the Devil’s Porch.

During the set they also managed to squeeze in a bit of Led Zeppelin, much to the metal crowds delight.

If you want to find out more about the band check out their website at and take a listen to their latest single “Wild”

Celebrated rocker Sebastian Bach is recognized globally as a vocalist, television star, actor and beyond! Bach hit the spotlight in the late 1980’s as the iconic frontman for mainstream heavy metal / hard rock act Skid Row. Since his departure from Skid Row in the mid 90’s, Sebastian Bach still remains one of the most relevant rock figures in pop culture today, with three solo records, network television appearances on MTV, VH1 and CMT, guest appearances on Gilmore Girls, Trailer Park Boys, Californication and other popular television shows, and several acting stints on and off Broadway. Bach’s most recent album, Give ‘Em Hell impressively, landed on the U.S. Top Hard Rock and Top 200 Billboard charts, proving his prowess decades after his initial debut. Bach’s Harper Collins memoir 18 And Life on Skid Row was released in 2017. He also appeared in the recent seasons of the Gilmore Girls and Trailer Park Boys in Fall 2017 via Netflix.
