I unfortunately arrived too late to see The Surfrajettes, but they were obviously a crowd favourite and finished a close second when it came to the audience response voting at the end of the night. As a frustratingly heterosexual male, they get my honourary award for best looking band of the night.
This is how I ranked the five bands I saw (and photographed), with a non-stage shot of The Surfrajettes added at the end so they're represented:
|The Men in Gray Suits (Montreal)|
|The Hang-Ten Hangmen (Vancouver)|
|The High Tides (Toronto)|
|The Reverb Syndicate (Ottawa)|
|The Black Eleven (Toronto)|
|The Surfrajettes (Toronto)|
The fun and surf sounds continue tonight with performances by The Blue Demons at 8 p.m. and The Red Elvises at 9 p.m. to help the Cadillac celebrate its 16th anniversary.
I won't be able to make it, but I definitely recommend both groups. It's been a few years since I've seen either of them, but they've always put a smile on my face. I've purchased lucha libre masks from The Blue Demons and I think I still have a Red Elvises sticker somewhere. The big red balalaika bass must be seen to be believed.
