The Airborne Toxic Event always bring a great show and their most recent one at The Commodore Ballroom this past October 24th was no exception. Fronted by one time journalist Mikel Jollett with strings provided by the lovely Anna Bullbrook, drums by Daren Taylor and guitars by Stephen Chen, newcomer Adrian Rodriguez is now on bass in place of of long time member, Noah Harmon. This show was our third tour with the band in Vancouver and the crowd were very pleased with their show.

The set list for this particular show provided some wonderful highlights of the band’s career to this point along with a bit of attention to Dope Machines, their upcoming album.
