bored teenagers.

the CLOAK/DAGGER & LORDS show was a good time.

CLOAK/DAGGER were pretty good but i just find that their songs tend to start sounding pretty similar although the last two songs were great.

LORDS were insanely loud. the amount of amps that band uses is insane. they are definitely a tight band and just flew through their set destroying all in their way.

they played a lot of new stuff that was supposed to be out on JADE TREE in march but will not be coming out till sometime this summer on a different label.

this week has some pretty awesome shows going down.

on thursday the 8th, we've got louisville's COLISEUM coming back for the first time in almost a year, this time accompanied by VICTIMS who are d-beat masters from sweden and TRASH TALK. a lot of people are excited that METZ will be opening not only because they are originally from ottawa but because they're a really great band who hasn't played here in what seems like years. the show is at CAFE DEKCUF. 7pm. AA/19+. $10. FB.

on the same night, you can get your weekly dose of pizza and rock n' roll by heading down to the BYTOWN TAVERN and hanging out with the PIZZA CITY ROCKERS. dj SCOTT of SKA/SOUL/ROCK N' ROLL is going to be our guest dj this week. 10 pm. 19+. $0. FREE PIZZA!!! FB

vancouver's punk/hardcore legends D.O.A. are going to be wrecking the party at the DOMINION on FRIDAY. THE BELLA BOMBS and FOUR-STROKE are going to be opening. i think this show is almost sold out and if there are tickets left there are at END HITS. FB

MARK SULTAN a.k.a. BBQ is going to be bringing the rock n' roll alongside surf/garage goddesses THE FELINES and globe-trotting punk rockers THE VISITORS. he plays total 50's throwback rock with a modern twist that you just can't help but dance to. check out his songs CURSED WORLD and SOMETHING WRONG. there's going to be dj's spinning music all night during and after the show so come out ready to party! it's all going down on SATURDAY MAY 10th at BABYLON. 9 pm. 19+. $6 FB

here's a video for KING KHAN & BBQ's version of BBQ's song "WADDLIN' AROUND." the video is amazing and so is the song.

there's a FREE SHOW on monday at THE MANX. don't pass up the chance to go see THE NYMPHETS from montreal/brooklyn play upbeat catchy punk with an 80's british pop feel at times. check out their songs WEDNESDAY MORNING and I DON'T CARE and you'll get a good idea of what they sound like. you can hear more here. they will be perfectly matched by THE WHITE WIRES who i believe will be blessing us with some new songs! so yeah, show up around 9pm hang out and enjoy the show. you'll get way more than your money's worth.
