Last week I wandered over to Black Squirrel Books for some post-punkery and what-nottery. On the bill were locals Young Offenders and Montreal's Five Eyes. Young Offenders - or, at least, three-quarters of the bands, since guitarist Jacob couldn't make it - took the floor first with some tangled sounds. Here's singer-guitarist Kurt and bassist Simon.
Josh Duffenais hits!
The whole lot!
There was also some enthusiastic dancing in the crowd.
Even more Simon!
Late-set trumpet action!
Five Eyes also played a very well-received set, they have a scrappy desperate sound, and feature Ottawa expat Joni from Caymans and Harsh Reality on drums. Here's guitarist Amy and Joni!
And here's guitarist and singer Graham!
And even more Amy!
A fine evening's entertainment.
