Monster Magnet kicked off their North American tour last night with a long-awaited Toronto date — I’m not sure they’ve been to Hogtown since I moved here in ’05.
Tribulation is a Swedish dark metal quartet with four albums under its belt…but I hadn’t heard of them until very recently. I guess it shows how allergic to corpse paint I am.
Black Tusk and Whores brought the energy up from Georgia to put a heavy end to the start of the week–with a solid supporting act straight outta Quebec!
Angel Witch has been an active outfit, more or less, since 1978…but they had never played Toronto until 2018.
What’s better than seeing Earthless live? How about seeing Earthless live with lava lights!? The San Diego heavy psych veterans brought their new album…
It was great to see Pallbearer back in Toronto–and as a four-piece this time.
Pink is pretty much the quintessential Boris album. Not only is it the closest they’ve come to that stoner/doom stuff all the kids are listening to these days, but it also contains a few tracks where they kick out the jams like the MC5 on takoyaki…
Evidently I can’t be in seven places at once, so for me, Lee’s was the place to be last night for a pair of hardcore pioneers from both sides of the border.
Electric Wizard’s Time to Die tour marked their first extended trek across North American in 13 years, and their first Toronto appearance in…forever!? No wonder it was such a hot ticket.
I forgot that our brave legislators only listen to bands like the Eagles and Supertramp. Cuz with their new amendments to the country’s labour laws, Stephen Harper and company are making it so that crusty classic rockers and pre-fabricated pop tarts could be the only artists to ever come to Canada…
