Quick–flip on the set, turn to Bravo! and check out Sam Roberts at the Concert Hall (8 p.m. ET, repeats Friday at 6 p.m.). The Juno award-winner performed this concert a few months ago at the funky old Masonic Temple in Toronto. My 18-year-old son Daniel, who stood in the snow to see Roberts perform New Year`s Eve in Brampton, went down and checked him out and gives the show a big thumbs up. Host Matt Wells asks the right questions and Roberts keeps things up close and intimate. There are plenty of cuts from Roberts new album Colider but there are older fan favourites, too, although, according to Dan, the rocker did not treat the audience to The Gate with its eight minute long, trippy, psychedelic guitar solo. Next time.
