The crying game

Boo Hoo put on a very sturdy show of pop punk as the opening band at the Jetplanes of Abraham's first CD release party (they have another coming up Dec. 16). And by pop-punk, I don't mean the glossy stuff passed out nowadays, but the hybrid that sprung up in Minneapolis with bands like Husker Du back in the early 1980s. These guys would have been a good opener for The hold Steady, and would get along fine with Silo the Huskie.

Ben clapping action!



Rob shouting action!



Marc drumming action!



And plain old action-type action!



Singalong action!



They're going for that Christmas look.



A very solid start to a hot night.

Hi Andrew,
It's not Jetplanes' CD release show...I know that Punk Ottawa has it listed as that, but that's incorrect info.
Thanks,
matthew
