From Fix to finish

Ottawa Explosion's show at the Dominion started with a set from Mother's Children, but I arrived too late to catch them - Mental Fix was the first act I saw. The Montreal quartet plays some straight up old-school punk rock. Here's bassist Steve1

Every year I wonder "Who has travelled the greatest distance to be here?" Some years it's a close call. This year it is not, unless there's a band from Antarctica I didn't hear about, since Dad Jokes came all the way from Auckland, New Zealand. Here's Ian and Matt!
