I headed over to Pressed last week to check out Sackville's Partner. The group features Lucy Niles and Josée Caron from the much-lauded Killer Haze. Also on the bill local acts The Yips and BB Cream, which includes Alanna from the late, great Gaycation. Here she is now!
Bass action with Jon!
The middle slot was filled by The Yips. It seems like too long since I saw them at Ottawa Explosion; though I've seen various members on stage in Casa Lagarto and Warp Lines, such as Kurt, at right with Zach.
Partner put on a fantastic set. They're usually described as a punk band, but they put me more in mind of early college rock breakthrough outfits like Liz Phair and Weezer. They've got witty lyrics and a super guitar sound. Here's occasional Mouthbreather Lucy Niles!
And here's Josée!
There were some electrical issues, so Lucy and Josee were sharing one microphone.
I'm not sure who the duo have grabbed to back them on tour, but here they are!
Happy drumming action!
A shouty bit!
The crowd goes wild!
They definitely deserve all the praise they're receiving.
