last night at birdland.



i went to the stepping stone benefit show at
birdland here in halifax last night, and
saw some interesting people...

thursday toads - never saw this young halifax band
before.  three boys, one girl (on guitar - not bass!).
they sound like everclear would if they had more
pop sensibilities.  good guitar sound.  if murder are
still interested in putting out records that people
younger than sloan want to listen to, they should
take note.  but of course they're too busy promoting
half-assed pelvic-thrusting blues-rock.  ;-)

matt grimson & the n.d. - my first chance to see
matt's electric band lineup, featuring weasel-faced
ben on bass (and a shirtless drummer that looked
for all the world like a refugee from the kentucky
headhunters).  jim cooper says matt sounds like john
bottomley.  and he should know.  :-)  this band
has a surpisingly nasty grinding edge to them.

sarah maclachlan - ok, she didn't play, but she
*was* there, alright?  i just like name-droppping,
ok?  patrick pentland.  patrick pentland.
patrick pentland.  ;-)

sorry i can't report on al tuck or leonard conan.
neither got on before midnight so i had to leave.
some of us have jobs, lives, etc...  :-)
