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.
I’ve always thought that Black Pussy was a dumb band name. When I first heard of them opening for Vista Chino a couple years back, I thought “Why would you call your band that!?”
As for Weedeater, I don’t think they’ve played here in about five years, and it seems their legend has grown since the last time I’ve seen ’em. There were all sorts of bearded weirdos in attendance that I’ve never seen before–and the crazy crowd made for a rather raucous performance!
This was a co-headlining gig, with Napalm going on last and both them and the Melvins playing for about an hour. But from my vantage point, I gotta say, the Melvins had a much more punishing pit!

Pentagram was scheduled to come up here for NXNE in June, but got denied at the border. So when I heard they’d be playing within driving distance–on Canadian Thanksgiving, no less–I just had to scratch that itch, eh?
ProgPower XVI: Wednesday We arrived to Wednesday’s Midweek Mayhem show in time for Ashes of Ares just beginning their set. We missed out on…
