Last week I paid my annual visit to Irene's for a trio of roots-rocking acts. It was the debut performance for Hundred Pacer and the sophomore show from Chris Landry & The Seasick Mommas, but I dare say they aren't too many unfamiliar faces on stage. The usual suspects start with Chris, usually seen playing with The Glorious Moonrockets. For this more acoustic offering, he was joined by Stuart, his only Momma (for this set, anyway).
Momma action! Stu has also played with The Dusty Drifters and Train Jumpers.
Saint Clare was on stage next with some loud'n'rowdy Memphis-styled rock'n'roll. Here's some closeup action with frontman Matthew!
Bass'n'keyboard action with Ryan and Casey!
Some jumping about on the left from Morgan, Nick and Jeffrey!
Daniel is stuck back there.
Ryan might be enjoying himself a bit too much.
Richard sings one!
Headliners Hundred Pacer are fronted by Rey, of John Henrys fame, and feature a couple of Pop Shove-Its in the lineup as well (and some Handsome Devils as well). Here's Sebastian on guitar, Rey singing and Kosta on drums.
Pop Shove-It, Handsome Devil and Chops & The Holicster Rob rounds out the quartet.
Faceoff action! Rey: "The photographers like it when we do that. We'll have to do it more often."
A super night out.
