Wrong Hole @ Hard Luck

Wrong Hole began as a 2 piece band because the members wanted the option to take the bus to shows. I totally get that. However they realized it takes 3 to tango....I guess. Anyways they play pretty sweet ass garage rock. Their album "2012" starts off with the tune "What Is A Car?" and I couldn't answer that question. I got in right in to the full on dirty rock n roll though. The fuzzy guitars jive with the pissed off vocals perfectly. The album covers cleverly rips off Rush's "2112" cover which made me wonder if they asked Neil Peart to plays drums to replace their current drummer Drum Machine. I don't think it would work out with Neil. Wrong Hole for sure plays loud as shit live so if that's what your craving then go to Hard Luck Bar on Saturday for CMW where they are one of many bands opening for Agent Orange.- Kris"Big City"Gies

OL'CD @ Silver Dollar

OL'CD are a 4 piece dirty rock band originally from London, Ontario. I first saw them a few months ago at Homegrown Hamilton and liked their attitude. They just came to party. Their latest album called "Choco Moloko" was released in April of last year and I particularly like the 1st track from the album "Nows The Time". It makes me wanna get wasted. Theres always room for that kinda tune on a weekend. Get your weekend started early at The Silver Dollar Room tomorrow night for CMW. They'll be sharing the stage with Deli Fav's Pet Sun and Together Pangea from Los Angeles.-Kris"Big City"Gies

Chico Dusty Tonight @ Rancho Relaxo

Chico Dusty hail from Burlington, Ontario. I was immediately interested based on their chicano motif and their name which to me is a combination of Razor Ramon and Dusty Rhodes. I peeped their single "Feels Like Winter" which was released last June. It's a real grown up pop rock song that showcases some nice harmony action from these fellas. Their latest single "Shakin" is a quicker tune with a groovy rhythm section that'll get your toes tappin', Add in the guitar and you'll be Shakin just as the song title suggests. Chico Dusty will be headin up the QEW tonight to play Rancho Relaxo for CMW.-Kris "Big City" Gies

League of Wolves

League of Wolves are heading to Canadian Music Week from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. So of course those prairie boys have sweet beards. They just released a self titled album. I fired into it...starting at the top with "Runaway". Groovy beats and mean electric guitar will get your outta your seat and over to the bar...you'll make it to the dance floor eventually. The next track "Ariella" had a more mellow vibe...could be reggae-sized if they really wanted to. Also showed off their harmonies. Nice variety in the top 2 tracks. They're playin back to back nights for CMW first on Wednesday May 6th at Rancho Relaxo then at the Bier Market on Thursday May 7th.-Kris "Big City"Gies

Brews Willis @ Lee's Palace

I've noticed the band name Brews Willis before and thought it was awesome. So of course I wasn't surprised when their tunes were pretty sweet too. "Party's Over" sounds like it came straight from the 90s. Props to the singer's mustache too. The next track was "Great Energy" from their previous release of the same name. "Great Energy" started with some cool reverby surf guitar and would morph into a full on punk rock song that has...yup...great energy. The ooh wee ooh's in the chorus added a nice touch. They're playing Lee's Palace on May 7th for Canadian Music Week. Killer gig for a deadly band. Go!-Kris “Big City” Gies
