I checked out the second night of Skreedlemania last month at the House of Targ. In addition to local legends such as The Stand Gt and The Banditas, there were local stalwarts in Rex Heck and The Sir John A Macdonalds, with Outtacontroller also making the trip from Halifax. First up, Rex Heck, who I also caught a few weeks before at Targ. Here's Danny.
Brad in blue!
Dave sings some!
Dave plays some guitar!
It's been a while since I saw The Sir John A Macdonaldsc- they were to have played a gig at Irene's in January, but an illness meant frontman and garage rock lifer Patrick Shanks played a solo set instead. The various members are healthy again, so here's a non-solo Patrick.
Chris Cook sings!
Chris Anderson frets!
Extra other Chris!
And so on!
The Banditas were up next; I saw them quite a bit around the time I was starting up National Capital Rock. They haven't quite stopped, but their shows are fairly infrequent these days. Anyway, they still burn the place up. Here's Liz.
Well known Skreedlemaniac Scott frets!
Outtacontroller followed with a hot set of Ramones-inspired punk rock. Here's James singing.
Matt handles the low end.
Their drummer is new to me.
Terry sings a bit!
The Stand GT finished the night off; I was glad to see their Irene's gig earlier this year wasn't a one-off. Here's Doug!
Colin handles the low end.
Doug strikes a pose.
Percussive action with Wally!
Rhythm section action!
You could say it was a checkered performance.
Coling sings, checks out the ceiling!
Chris jumps about!
A great two nights.
