strummernite 2012!

we were lucky enuff to have one day free on Easter weekend to check out strummernite 2012 in Hamilton at This Ain’t Hollywood.

we were the DD that night so celebration lubrication was a nonfactor.  last yr we were able to make 2 nights of the yearly tribute to all things Joe Strummer and enjoy ourselves to the fullest extent.  this year unfortunately was not quite the same but we did enjoy the night all the same… if that makes any sense?  there were a lot of familiar artists back onstage but that didn’t matter much.  hearing all those songs live is a sonic treat to the our ears that doesn’t happen nearly enuff.

we posted all the pics we took with on our flickr site  The Letdowns were once again a hilite.  our deepest sincerest thx go out to the organizers for putting this stellar event on and we look fwd to another next yr!  til then enjoy this cheapy video we took of Career Opp!

Strummer Nights 2011

Forget summer nights in Hamilton, Strummer nights are way better!

We were lucky enough to experience 2 straight nights of Joe Strummer songs at This Ain’t Hollywood this past weekend.  Great crowds (the first night was capacity packed, second one almost) and a way better experience than having to live thru an evening of Gorillaz or Big Audio Dynamite to get your 2011 Clash fix.  It was so good we already can’t wait for the next version on Good Friday and Easter Saturday of 2012.  There wasn’t a bad act amongst the lineup with a heap of supergroups, one-offs, reunions and special guests appearing.  Folk, Punk, Celtic, Rock, Reggae, Rockabilly, Thrash genres and everything in-between were all covered.  Personal highlight had to be seeing the Letdowns (ex-Wetspots) play.  Ah, so many good shows they’ve had and all the memories just came flooding back the moment they hit the stage!  Our fave song, Straight to Hell got a sweet treatment and hearing Burning Lights from the soundtrack of I Hired a Contract Killer was fantastic!  Top marks for The Saints Are Coming for bringing a great Celtic twist to some songs that we wish the video we took did more justice.

and speaking of video, this event got us thinking about investing in a better camera to take videos of live music with since our current setup is hit and miss. its just an everyday digital camera and not meant for live music.  ahhhh, there’s always a reason for more gear!

Here’s some pics and some of the best of the video evidence.  Visit our youtube site for all the vizness. More videos still being added as we post this.  Thanks for the memories Strummer Night #9, we’ll see u again for 10!
