All right down to the real business ... I originally figured that National Capital Rock would focus purely on local rock'n'roll acts (that didn't last too long), but you can't get much more local and rocking than the Gaga Weekend convened by scenester supreme Ian Manhire. A load of Ottawa combos convened for the three-day event, starting with a Rock'n'Roll Pizza Party show so well attended that a good number of people were left standing outside. This show was also a release party for The Visitors' new 7-inch, but things kicked off with one of Ian's own bands, The Sedatives.

Big finish!

Their next show is at Bluesfest, on the Music-Themed Eatery Stage on July 12.
