Our Lady Peace’s soundman Sean Palmer wanted to one-up legendary sound consultant David Rat, so he took to the ice during a concert at Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa, Ontario.

“I heard that @dratsound used to bring grass with him to mix on. I did a Canadian version last night in Oshawa,” Palmer explained on Instagram, thanking “the lovely folks at @tributecommunitiescentre for pulling up some flooring so I could mix in my skates like an eccentric doucher. Gotta stay sharp for the playoffs.”

Standstills drummer Renee Couture even captured a little video of Palmer mixing on skates. So how did they pull it off? The arena’s William Balfour tells Amplify “The ice is always in so we have our event deck that goes over the ice. For this, our Operations team removed one of the pieces of event deck to expose the ice and then braced in the other boards and slushed them into place to create the mini skating pad.”

Oh Canada….we stand on skates for thee.
