PEACHES + Eagles Of Death Metal @ Metropolis

Peaches, featuring Eagles Of Death Metal?

Nope, I really didn’t see that one coming. Although they have each released albums with spicy titles such as Impeach My Bush and Death By Sexy respectively, this unlikely live combination seems just about as obvious (natural) as maple syrup and fish sticks… cucumber/earmuffs… Yanni and Garfunkel.

EELS + Smoosh @ Le National

This show was pretty much everything I wanted.

SOUNDS OF THE UNDERGROUND 2006 Tour @ Metropolis

By Johnny Suck - Turn Down the Suck - 07/12/2006

In my review of last year’s Sounds of The Underground, I had three major complaints against the festival. It was at a terrible venue, it started three hours late -- resulting in ridiculously short sets -- and the line-up was a mess. Luckily, all three of these issues were fixed when SotU made its return to Montreal on July 12th.

GODSMACK @ Metropolis

By Johnny Suck - Turn Down the Suck - 06/12/2006

Even though it’s lame, I still like to go slumming now and then. So you better believe I jumped on a free Godsmack ticket...

On my way over to Metropolis, I passed through the Francofolies site, which had Andrée Waters performing on the main stage. Stopping to watch for a few minutes, I was surprised by how good she was and even thought about sticking around for the whole set, Godsmack be damned. I don’t make light of commitments though, so I grudgingly continued on.

BLUE CHEER + Witch + The Mongrels @ La Sala Rossa

By K-Man - 06/29/2006

Oh man, when my ex-bandmate Steve 'Lud' Ludvik told me a month ago that he and his new bandmates The Mongrels were going to open up for Blue Cheer, I almost fell over.

Ahh the lovely Sala Rossa: the beers were flowin' as the love was growin'. People were running into each other for the first time in 8-10-15 years. We really came out of the woodwork for this one. Emotions ran deep, no way of getting around that one on this humid June 29th.
