Seasons come and go, but community radio fundraising never really stops - or maybe it just seems that way to me, since I go to a lot of shows in support of Ottawa's two excellent stations, CHUO and CKCU (not to neglect CKDJ, but I can't recall seeing any fundraisers for them). Friday night at Pressed it was CHUO's turn (co-presented by the Debaser crew), with sets from Grime Kings and Brazilian Money for a pretty packed house. Here's Jimmy and Callum.
Alex takes a turn on the keys.
Crowd reaction action!
Brazilian Money formed in Edmonton, and like many a band has since moved on to Montreal. Grime Kings was an ideal opening act for them, since they feature a similar amount of guitar tangle, with the Money men accentuating their sound with a pair of percussionists rocking the traditional kit as well as a standup set.
A bit of preset noodling.
Frontman Garrett Johnson has a revolving cast of musicians to help him out.
And so on!
Nonsensical shutter speed action!
All very entertaining.
