Last night there was a show at the Birdland and let me tell you, it was 2
goo 2 "B" real.. opening up were:
The Rome Plows, in a similar veign as the band they borrow their name
from (Drive Like Jehu).. they hit the stage with little banter, no crap,
just a guitar assult that few could match. A true force to be reckoned
with indeed.. who's to say where they will be in a years time??.. enjoy
them now while they'll still play here for us.
Next at bat, stinkin rich, doing a very laid back set that he performed
most of sitting down at a table with his turntable and a tape deck.. what
can you say about stinkin rich that hasn't already been heard? He's going
to PEI next weekend to record some new tracks (which he performed last
Crappo2, how can you _not_ love a star studded band like that?
State Champs.. performing all the hits, these badboys are the
headliners of the whole show. It was really funny to see the barflys
peddeling their taudry wears on the Birdland dancefloor to the sounds of
the Champs. After playing their set, the people hadn't had enough of the
action so they screamed, hooted and hollared until the beer soaked boys
of the State Champs picked up their axes and came back out and finished
what they had started, a good set.
All in all it was a good night, the proceeds were forwarded to CKDU,
Halifaxs best (and only) Community radio station, in support of their
funding Drive (like Jehu?)
