Since their formation in 1994, Toronto’s Sadies have developed, even perfected, a style of music that is uniquely their own. Possessing a deep fondness and reverence for the best of country, bluegrass and blues (CBGB!), they are equally informed and influenced by everything from 60s garage and psychedelic rock (Pebbles, Nuggets, et al) to surf instrumentals and punk rock. You’re as likely to find an enthusiastic fan of Negative Approach or Crime as one of Santo & Johnny or Merle Travis within their ranks. It’s all relevant and it all fits and that sort of depth goes a long way in helping to understand how they came to develop such a broad platform from which to launch their own musical explorations.
Whoa!!! It’s rumble time! “The Originators of the Hub City Hot Rod Sound”, the Heatscores, are readily prepared to once again blast their way through a hemi-powered set of ready for the strip, instrumental raunch and roll. It’ll be a bona fide stomp-o-rama twist fest when Saskatoon’s Masters of their Stratocasters reunite -one night only- to once again top the reverb richter scale. “Delicious” Dick (guitar), Thee Exciter (guitar), Gremmie (bass) and Joe Vile (drums) will have you pulsating to the backbeat as they knock you silly and singe your nose hair with thrills, chills, and tone that kills. Hell hath no fury like The Heatscores… I pity the survivors.
COME EARLY! $6 Black Bridge Lager Pints and $4 hi-balls/$6 doubles between 9:30pm – 11pm.
FM-Phasis is CFCR’s biggest annual fundraiser and represents a huge chunk of our operating budget. We simply could not exist without the amazing support from our community and our musical friends, so hope to see you out!
