well, last night in london ontario sfz/zumpano
played. first up..zumpano. this was the first time
i've ever seen them live and it definitely was not
the last time i'll go and see them. the crowd was
numerous but not reactionary. carl mocked the quiet
crowd in between songs by politely clapping himself.
they kicked off their set with "the party rages on".
a good mix of songs off both albums.
next.. superfriendz. matt in his "beatlefest '83"
shirt and charles in his steaming toolie t-shirt, they
began the show by taking requests. about halfway through
the set, drew broke a string in the middle of a song
so the rest of the guys finished the song with an extended
jam while drew replaced the string in less than a minute!
last night also marked the one year anniversary that lonnie
has been with the superfriendz. matt said that one year ago
that night lonnie had played his first show with them at cafe
ole in halifax. they had jason zumpano present him with a
one year anniversary trophy. it was this cheesy, old tennis
trophy that said 1984 on it. they had broken off the tennis
racquet in the little guy's hand and taped on a match stick
in each hand to represent drumsticks. lonnie remarked that he
wished his mom was here to see this and that the past year
has been great and these guys really *are* superfreindz!
then by request of lonnie, they whipped off a wreckless eric
cover song. i've only seen them play it live once before.
so.. they played lots of songs off the 10 ", blue tatoo,
stuff from MUSD and took lots of requests. just plain excellent!
the crowd in london was polite but there didn't seem to be much
excitement. that's too bad because the bands were trying real hard
to persuade people to dance or move or something. oh well.
it was a fantastic show all the same.
ps- london is home of the "nice body, snider." comment as
aired on that YTV interview done at a playground.
