Whew! Still recovering from a great show from the Mounties at Spiritbar; a Can-Con Supergroup made up of Hawksley Workman, Ryan Dahle (Limblifter, Age Of Electric) and Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat). They, and the audience, had a great time, so I expect them all to come back in one form or another…..
In local “scene news”, The Royal was granted a new liquor licence, thus making it a “turnkey operation” in actuality. Now, we wait to see who steps forward with the money.
Tomorrow night (Wednesday the 26th) Victoria garage rockers Babysitter return to the basement of Kootenay Co-op Radio. It’s a live-to-air-broadcast, so even if you can’t make it in person, tune in at 93.5FM or www.kootenaycoopradio.com ; locals Tar Holes and New Tron Bomb open up the night, doors at 8p.m.
Friday night, local metalheads Savage Blade finally release their new album, Angel Museum. It’s been delayed for a year, but I know it’ll be worth the wait. If you want a exclusive first listen, tune into my radio show Heavy Early at 4p.m. Thursday on K.C.R., when the boys will in-studio for an interview and listening session. As a special treat, clothing company Orage is footing the bill, so their show at Spiritbar is completely free!!! Show up early, doors at 10p.m.!!! See you there….
