A Lonely Business

Sometimes reading is a lonely business. When one reads a book, it’s largely an internal process. So many times I have finished a novel only to close it and think to myself, “that was really good, now what?” Whereas it is definitely satisfying to read something worthwhile, it’s sometimes frustrating …

Concert Review – Bonfire/Leather Snake

Ah the sight of spandex, leopard print and hair sprayed hair, it’s like the 80′s had never left st Thomas. The night was opened by AC/DC cover band Bonfire and opened well it was too, with many a dancer taking to the front of the stage if not a handy table. The first few opening songs of Leather Snake were interrupted by sound problems, but once resolved, the band brought back the 80s rock scene as if it had always been here. The number of flashbacks I suffered were countless and that was just from the outfits. While to many, the 80s rock scene was rather light in the loafers with more hair bands making it big then true heavy metal, Leather Snake played hits from Maiden, Dio, and Bon Jovi among others. The one thing I did find disturbing was the number of small children and babies in the crowd. Having been to many concerts over the years, I know what it’s like to wake up the morning after a concert and have ringing in the ears. I personally don’t believe that young children and babies should be at a concert with the decibel levels such as last night. [...]

Concert Review – The Caverners

The Friday night concert at the St. Thomas Iron Horse Festival as performed by The Caverners, Canada’s top Beatles cover band. Once they started with ‘I saw her standing there’  the music didn’t stop, with the exception of a approximately 20 minute interlude, for two enjoyable hours. The band, who not only looked like John, Paul, Ringo and George, changed costumes and hair to match the appropriate era of the music, the second half of the set complete with Sgt. Pepper outfits. Technical difficulties (a keyboard that died) probably stopped a few classics from being played but there were a great number of instantly recognizable songs preformed. ‘Back in the USSR’, ‘With a little help from my friends’, ‘Getting Better’ and countless others were played and well received from the crowd who warmed up the band as the night went along. The only song not from the Beatles catalog was John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ which was very well received from the crowd that seemed to be a little older than the average modern day rock concert goer. With the Beatles being such a staple in so many people’s lives it is not difficult to see why The Caverners are so well [...]
