Saturday I went to Gabba Hey to check out an all age show. Things got started a little earlier than I expected them to, so I missed Ottawa's latest musical offering, Weed Mom, but I did catch swell sets from Baberaham Lincoln, Moss Lime and New Fries - quite a varied offering, come to think of it.
Baberaham Lincoln were up first (well, second, really). Here's keyboardist and Simpsons triviameister Cory!
DJ Sadboy (of Gaycation) kept the crowd dancing between sets.
Up next Moss Lime; last time I saw them (at Pressed), Joel Young was playing guitar. I hope that Charlotte joining Helene and Caitlin on stage is a sign that various visa problems have been ironed out. Either way, expect an album out on Telephone Explosion some time this year. Here's some guitar action!
Singalong action with Charlotte and Caitlin!
The whole lot!
On to the herky jerky sounds of the highly energetic New Fries. The Toronto band used to just be called Fries, but apparently another similarly named band told them to cut it out. Perhaps they should have called themselves No Fries, because their sound is straight out of the NY No Wave scene. Anyway, here's Anni rocking the guitar.
Bassist Tim works the crowd.
The whole lot! Unfortunately I neither know the keyboardist's name, nor got a good picture of him.
Fine stuff all around, and a very enthusiastic young crowd as well.
