As the fur flies

It was a night of rock, rock, rock last night: Indefatigable tourists The Stolen Minks have been criss-crossing the continent (you can check their blog at for tales of their adventures), and landed at Irene's for some punchy shouty punk rock.

Openers Garaga fit in nicely with the headliner; they'll be back at Irene's in a week to open for Maximim RNR.

Shanker and Romps were the ice cream centre to the rock'n'roll sandwich for this show. They're playing again tonight at Zaphod's with Krista L. Muir. This was their rock set; tonight you get their pop set.

The Stolen Minks are a brash trio from Halifax who rocked a lot harder than I expected a band called Stolen Minks to. They're a pretty punky bunch and covered a song by speedy Atlanta Ramones fans The Carbonas. From left to right, Steph, Erica and Tiina.

Today they'll be in Montreal, and by Nov. 20 they'll be back home where, as Patrick Shanks observed, there are beds and showers "With soap!" Yay!
