Day 10+11: Charlottetown/Halifax

Day 10: Charlottetown

After our stellar time in Moncton trying to win dildo(es)? and spending sometime with our buds in The Motorleague, Iron Giant, Konjurer, and of course Biipiigwan, it was time to hit the road yet again. We figure that since we are so close to home, it’s time to retire ol Vanny Devito, and we would head to Charlottetown in 2 very safe and working cars. So after dropping the van off, we load the gear in the cars and head to Charlottetown.

After all of the van troubles, long drives, late nights, and playing shows like every show was sold out; most of us were completely exhausted.We caffeinate ourselves and have some eats and prepare for the evening.

First up for Charlottetown was UNCLE. They are a power violence duo which reminded me alot of fuck the facts, definitely a great band worth checking out.

If any of you reading this know Baba’s lounge, you will know how small it is and how intimate you get with the bands playing. When BIIPIIGWAN hit the stage, and fears of them crashing through the floor were fresh in our heads. But as always, they completely destroyed the place and whipped the crowd into frenzy.

Its really hard to play after BIIPIIGWAN because they are so awesome, so the pressure is on to stand up to that performance and please our maritime fans. We played well with a sweaty blend of tunes from WORDS and we also broke out the workhorse for those who wanted to hear it.

We finished the night at our brother Dans (Death Valley Driver) with a few brews and some electric lettuce. It’s time to hit the hay, because the next stop is…….HOME!!!!

 

Day 11: HALIFAX

We are home. No more Vanny Glover. No more sleeping on floors, or couches, we get to eat real food, and sleep in our real beds. As awesome as it sounds we are all very sad that this is the last day of tour. But hey, at least it is home and we know that the crazy haligonians will be happy to see us again. We get to Gus’s pub, we have some Ace burgers (seriously have one if you haven’t already, easily the best burgers in town) and start lugging gear. (As an added bonus there were also Unicorn and Zombie shaped shortbread cookies provided by Chester from Ear to Ear!)

photo-3

This is a spectacular show. the line up is a solid line up of some of the best talent in the city, featuring Ear to Ear, Black Moor, BIIPIIGWAN and ourselves. Ear to Ear start the night off with their very spastic, groovy and progressive metal. definitely a great way to start the night off. next up is Black Moor, who never seem to disappoint with their classic blend of thrash and furious leads. BIIPIIGWAN heads up next and shows Halifax what a monster they all are They seriously destroyed Gus’s.

We get up with our new band name “secret guest” and Halifax doesn’t disappoint in the pit. after all was said and done we said goodbye to our new brothers in BIIPIIGWAN, and we all head home and got to bed.

All in all besides the van troubles and 2 missed shows its safe to say that the bogus journey was a total success and we look forward to hitting the road again.

Day 9: Moncton

We arrived in Moncton early and were lucky enough to spend some relaxing time with our friend Don from The Motorleague and also enjoy a delicious scoff of tasty BBQ food.

Although we’ve played Moncton many times before this was out first time at the infamous Esquire Tavern which back in the day was a staple in Moncton scene (helping launch such bands as monoxides, ditch pigs and many others) as we loaded we were greeted by a sign which read “if your wife calls and you’re not here, you tell her!” which was only surpassed by their coin operated claw machine which had such prizes as teddy bears, dildos and porno DVDs…

one thing was certain, it was going to be a wild night!

After selling some merch to some drunken local VLT players it was time for the show to begin and once Konjurer took the stage the beers begin pour faster as the crowd was whipped into a thrash-fuelled frenzy! (Leaving the floor covered in a layer of spilled beer) Biipiigwan followed up with another crushing performance and we were left to close out the night with a set of mostly our new album “Words” and ‘The Workhorse Walks Alone’ to end the eve. Overall a great show! (We will be playing in Moncton once again on April 26th with 3 Inches of Blood, Goatwhore and Konjurer -> Info Here)
