The Victoria BC Ska Society presents
Join us Friday March. 8th for The Real Mckenzies St. Paddy's Day Tour and CD release of "Westwinds". Joining them are Vancouver's East End Radicals and Victoria's own garage rock n' roll The Stockers.
The Real Mckenzies are baaaack… Westwinds is packed to the brim with roaring, rollicking and epic tales that shanghai the listener on a thirteen song, sea-tossed journey through the wild and wonderful world of The Real McKenzies. Recorded over several months at Crabapple Downs by the phenomenal Steve Loree, Westwinds is a sonic shot of deliciousness delivered straight to your ear holes. From the unapologetic raised middle figure salute of “Fool’s Road” to the hook-laden tongue-in-cheek “My Luck Is So Bad” to one of the most poignant and blood-pumping renditions of “Barrett’s Privateers (Stan Rogers)” that you’ll ever hear, this killer album is set to become an instant classic in the collections of both new and diehard fans alike. Much like a fine single malt scotch, The Real McKenzies only get better with age .
The East End Radicials recent album "Carry On" captures the passion, intensity and fury of their phenomenal live show experience all wrapped up in this sonically astounding 12 song full length recorded Studio DRX in their hometown of Montreal. Carry On has a distinct classic punk rock flavor for all tastes whether it be fisting pumping anthems like “Call to Arms” and “Carry On”, songs about political corruption like “Firebombs”, Celtic barnstormers like “Shipped Away” or “Last of the Free”, or the quintessential DIY spirit of “Up and Over” and “Where We Stand”.
The Stocker's Victoria's own fueled by booze, cigarettes, hot rods, hot yoga, motorcycles, and rock and roll fire off the night! Get there early as this show will tear you a new asshole! Advance tickets in stores soon and now available on ticketweb.ca . Lucky Bar, 517 Yates Street. Doors at 10pm.
