My bout with the common cold not only stopped me from going to shows, but it also has apparently fried my brain because I just remembered this show from two weeks ago at House of Targ. Toronto duo Bond Girls came to play a set alongside Neon Wave, with whom they've just released a split single, and local outfit Stay Classy (who are also playing this Friday as part of Junofest, at the Dominion). Here's Classy frontman P.J. (also of The Gallop), and subbing drummer Tyler.
Bass action with Gavin (of Black Dogs)!
Singalong action with Love Machinist Allan!
Neon Wave took things in a slightly more atmospheric direction; here's singer-guitarist Norm and a fuzzy drummer Ryan!
More guitar with Derek!
Bond Girls sounded a bit like a stripped-down Queens Of The Stone Age to me; unfortunately the lights were down so low for their set I only took a couple of photos. Here they are in all their grainy glory! Guitar action with Sam Seguin (once of Soviet States, I think?)
And here's The Balconies' Mike Laing.
Fun, but dark.
