Riff Clip: Bigwig Perform “Flavor Ice” @ Funeral Home


Over the weekend, Burlington, ON’s Toneland Studio set up a stage within the parking lot of a funeral home to host a ton of local acts. One major American export, Bigwig, however, also partook in the festivities.

As the band headlined on Sunday evening, our friend Andrew Perrins of Shift-D was on the scene and captured video of Bigwig performing “Flavor Ice.” It’s been eight years since the band’s last album, Reclamation, and almost that long since Canadians last saw the group on home soil. Bigwig frontman, Tom Petta, recently offered us an explanation in this Q&A.

Bigwig is currently touring across Ontario, before heading over to Montebello, QC, for a performance at Amnesia Rockfest.

In the meantime, please enjoy this clip!
