Do the blackball

Blackball's closing set at Irene's qualifies them as the first band I saw play in 2007 ... an auspicious start, which kicked off with a cover of Blue Oyster Cult's Dominance and Submission. There were also covers of Motorhead's Bomber, The Dream Syndicate's Days of Wine and Roses, Iron Maiden's Trooper and The Sensational Alex Harvey Band's Vambo.

Kevin bends.

Ron sings!

Shouting action with Dave!

Hair-waving action!

And so on!

They finished things off with Blackball, inspiring Good2Go drummer Gilles Mantha to invent a similarly named dance on the spot. The Blackball will strike again at Cafe DeKcuf March 9 as they take part in the first of the Old School Punk Hangover with Harshey and four-stroke.
