Join us Friday March. 7th for The Real Mckenzies St. Paddy's Day Tour and CD release of "Westwinds". Joining them are Montreal's BOIDS 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 BOIDS - How do you define this made-up word? You define it as BOIDS; Montréal’s unstoppable punk rock juggernaut. Yes, kiddies, these Boys Of Intelligent Design & Style sure are here to stay, blazing trails through long-forgotten alleyways & loitering in strictly the most illoiterable locations. Inspired by a hatred of love and a love of hate, these four strapping young shyboys band together to channel Cosmic Frustration into a fine balance of pop-punk, thrash and old-school HC.
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 $15 available at Ditch Records, BC Smoke Shop, Lyle's Place and ticketweb.ca . Lucky Bar, 517 Yates Street. Doors at 10pm.
