Three solo performers played for fans at Aftermath at UFV for an afternoon of competition and original live music. Todd Brown began the battle with his collection of songs about Canada, and started his set with the tender Yellowhead Highway. “Please head back to Calgary,” he pleads in his melodic tune with his guitar.

Banjo and guitar-playing and Matt McAllister was up next, introducing his set with, “This is about flowers and nice things.” Switching instruments halfway through the set, he ended with Weird Ideas.
