illScarlett had a busy week around July 10th, the day of the release of their debut full-length album All Day With It. On July 10th alone they stopped by 102.1 The Edge for an interview, then did a photo session, then over to Much Music for a show, then cleaned up for their early start CD Release Concert at The Opera House, and then finished the big day off with an afterparty. Ticket holders to the show at The Opera House received a copy of the new CD. During the week, they stopped by MTV, played an Uninvited Guest party, and performed three sets over the course of the Billy Talent concert on Friday night. I'm sure there was more that I'm forgetting.

9:00 PM on July 10th - CD Release Concert

To celebrate the release of their new CD, illScarlett played through a 12 song set and 3 song encore, including 8 of the 10 songs off their new album (Who's Got It?, The Fashion, Danse Macabre, Life Of A Soldier, Nothing Special, Wake Up, Paradise Burning, and NTF) and all 8 songs of their previous EP (if you count NTF twice since it's on both the EP and new CD). They put on their usual full-on big stage high energy performance to a capacity crowd.

I realize I'm publishing a lot about illScarlett these days, but when you find something good, you stick with it. These guys put on an amazing show their maximum energy level makes them a challenge to photograph, and I always leave their shows on a high. Now that I've heard more than a few sets, I'm having trouble getting some of their songs out of my head. I can't tell you how many nights last week my brain ran through Nothing Special while I slept. At the moment, their CD is selling for under 10 bucks, so if you're considering purchasing it, now is the time. Even if you're currently undecided on their studio recordings, it is well worth getting out to seeing their live performance at least once.

11:00 PM on July 10th - Afterparty

You don't release your debut full-length CD without a little celebration, so after a long day of promotion and a concert, illScarlett held an afterparty at a local bar. There's probably not a lot I should say here except that it was a good time. Okay, I'll tell you three things:
  • The first photo is of Neal. Yes, that Neal. Everyone thinks it's spelled "Neil", but apparently not. Ask him, if you don't believe me.
  • The photo of the guy in the yellow shirt is Andy, one of the hardest working band managers around. Look at him, he was serving the guests food. Go Andy!
  • The photo with me in it was taken by Jonny D.

6:30 PM and 11:00 PM on July 13th - Coke Tent at Molson Amphitheatre

It's good to be busy during the week of your debut full-length CD release, so illScarlett kept up the pace by performing three times at the Billy Talent show at the Molson Amphitheatre. They also signed CDs, shirts, and the occasional body part. While the main stage was filled with great bands such as Die Mannequin, Cancer Bats, Alexisonfire, and of course, Billy Talent (who were really brilliant), illScarlett first played the side-stage between 5-6 PM, then an acoustic set at the Coke tent around 6:45 PM, and one more acoustic set for the afterparty. A great night all around.
