I went to Zaphod Beeblebrox last Saturday to show some pre-Thanksgiving love for a slew of fine ands, domestic and imported. Hardcore quartet DOXX, post-garage rockers The Sedatives and Sheffield's Sievehead and Montreal's No Negative made up the killer lineup. First up, DOXX, featuring many folks you've seen in other bands. Here's Sof, the one member new to me.
Jeff on bass!
More Sof and Kieran of Creep Wave!
More Sof and Jeff!
Guitar action with Brittany, also of Creep Wave! All my Brittany photos turned out terrible. Sorry, Britt.
Even more Sof and Jeff!
And finally a bit more Sof and Kieran!
Despite their full schedule of other bands and construction projects the members of The Sedatives seem to be hitting the boards pretty frequently since their return at Ottawa Explosion. Here's Ian and Steve (of The Steve Adamyk Band, of course)!
The other side of Ian and Steve!
Emmanuel of Crusades sings!
Dave of Black Tower hits!
Well there are a few more so-so Sedatives snaps on my Flickr stream for those interested in what Steve and Emmanuel look like when they're out-of-focus ... on to No Negative, bringing the heavy psyche noise like only they can. Here's Matt (New Humans and sundry other psyche combos)!
Laser-bass action with Carlo!
Mark of Ultrathin and others sings!
Still haven't found out who their drummer is!
Shouty Matt action!
Extra Carlo and lasers!
Sievehead finished the night off with a fine set of Joy Division inspired post-punk. Here's singer Dave!
Bass action with Joe!
And some final smokey action!
A great show courtesy of the Ottawa Explosion crew.
