If you want to see a wild and crazy show, Duchess Says is always a good bet. I've seen them play a few times in the last decade and frontwoman Annie-Claude always gets up to some entertaining shenanigans - the music is always great too. They were joined by local combos Expanda Fuzz and Dark Plains. Dark Plains started things off with some super-heavy post-punk sounds - here's guitar man Chuck (Last Communion, Mountanaka and others).
Plain action with Chuck and Andy!
A shouty bit!
On to Expanda Fuzz, who continue their dedication to JAMC-style drum machine fuzz rock.
Guitar action with Leila!
Bass action with Chris!
Drum machine action!
Let's just start by saying that Duchess Says always have a strong banner game (which usually gets destroyed by show's end); this time they had one that lit up! Here's well-illuminated drummer Simon and guitarist Ismael!
Bass action with Phil!
And here's Annie-Claude, with a beer she will shortly pour over her own head!
And so on!
Josh from the bar also contributed some vital budgie-related history.
A really fantastic show.
