On Canada Day I headed over to the House of Targ again, this time for some Canadian content, Ottawa style. A bunch of performers celebrated the national music scene by covering some of their faves for a big crowd. I missed the first act (featuring folks from Criticull); when I walked in the door some folks from Low Noise productions were doing some Skinny Puppy.
Keyboard adjusting action!
And so on!
The next band on stage were the Hot Snake Handlers, but I was too busy eating perogies to take any photos of them running through tunes by David Wilcox and The Northern Pikes. After they wrapped up with some Hardcore Logo soundtrack action, most of the The Lindbergh Babies took a stab at some of their West Coast faves, including NoMeansNo. Here's some guitar action with Greg!
Bass action with Janine from Porcelain Forehead and Unwarranted Trust!
Some Sidelines and Doxx guys stepped up to do a few Gob tunes. Here's some guitar action!
Bass action with Ska Jeff!
Rhythm section action!
If that wasn't enough pop-punk action for you, Pistols At Dawn came on next to absolutely slay with their covers of Sum 41 tunes. Here's some percussive action with Tony!
Appropriate T-shirt action!
A shouty bit!
Uvula turned the clock back a few decades with covers of Andy Kim's No. 1 hit, Rock Me Gently, Paul Anka's Having My Baby and a pair of Neil Young tunes.
Jolly Jamie action!
Mosely dedicated their set (mostly) to Alanis Morrisette, with an Our Lady Peace chaser. Here's some vocal action with Dani!
Singalong action with Mike!
Guitar action with Eric!
Bass action with Mat!
In Heat rocked some Lee Aaron and Helix tuneage, along with Loverboy and one of their own. Here's Joady and Tony!
A shouty bit with Lefty!
Guitar action with Brent!
Not-quite-finally, Slo' Tom tackled the songs of that other Tom, Stompin', such as Sudbury Saturday Night and Big Joe Mufferaw.
Spoon action with Remi!
Remi finished up by singing a few tunes (in the crowd, so my photos really didn't turn out) and there was also some pickled egg contest action. I think everyone's agreed to do it again next Canada Day!
