Mondays can be a little slow in Ottawa, but that didn't stop local scene admirers Ottawa Showbox from putting locals The Haig and out-of-towners Dories up on Mugshots small stage. A fairly enthusiastic crowd made the trip to the House of Correction to eat chili and listen to music.
The Haig cop to a certain eclecticism; they've got some of that heavy 1990s college sound along with some quirky vocals. Here's Richard, Dean, Chris (on drums) and Treawna.
More Richard and Dean!
A rare non-blurry photo of Treawna.
On to Dories; who may recognize drummer Spencer and Josef (at left, on guitar) from their Daily Grind show with Topon Das and Obsidian Will under the Mono No Aware name. Aidan and Chris fill out Dories.
Staring action with Aidan!
Chris rocks the low end.
The whole lot!
An interesting evening of off-the-beaten-track pop.
