Heavy music comes in many forms, and if you wanted something close to the full spectrum, the House of Targ was the place to be: The NWOBHM-to-the-max of Thunderkok, classical moves from Devah Quartet and whatever Muffler Crunch is. This was the first show for Thunderkok, and they went the extra mile with the stage props and some over-the-top stage posturing. Here's some guitar action with David!
Headbanging action with Garrett!
Flying V action!
Iron Maiden has Eddy, so I guess Thunderkok has ... Dicky?
Bass action with Travis!
Percussive action with Kelso!
Bloody finale action!
Crunch are put on a fantastic show, and this was one of their best.
They're playing at the Dominion at the end of the month (October 28, to
be precise) with Boom Creek and Slim'N'Popular and also have a new EP on
the way. Here's Luc!
The shouty bit!
The whole lot!
Luc runs about!
And so on!
Devah Quartet finished the evening with a diverse set showing off their
classic and metal influences; not everything was what you would call
"heavy" - as they said themselves, sometimes you have to switch things
up a bit. Here's violinist Emily!
Five-string action with Sharon!
Sharon jumps about!
Cello action with Liza! That's Moira on another five-string.
Baby bump action with Moira!
Bendy action with Sharon!
A very diverse evening.
