Tuesday night Burlington kicked off it’s first Indie Music Night at The Dickens Pub on Elizabeth Street. This is something that I have been hoping to see ever since I moved here. Burlington is a hotbed of musical talent with limited opportunity to showcase your chops. Ben Rispin of Burly Calling has stepped up to the plate again along with Chuck Coles of the Organ Thieves and thrown together the first month of acts. I say first month as the plan is that if this is successful it will become an ongoing production till Death due us part. If last night is any indication the program is off to a great start. Chuck got things started with an amazing acoustic performance. I have always been a fan of the Organ Thieves
and it was great to see Chuck in such an intimate setting. Chuck will be hosting the event every Tuesday going forward changing things up by having locals join him for a few tunes to warm up the crowd for the evenings feature band.
Last nights feature band was Burlington’s Penske File. As you all know I am a huge fan and last night they did not disappoint.
Playing many favourites , I was glad to catch these guys again before they explode and move onto the next level which they are more than ready for. The entire evening was … wait for it …..Free! Thanks to the Dickens Pub, and sponsors Burly Calling and Piston Head Lager and Sailor Jerry Rum it will continue to be Free every Tuesday night.
Upcoming feature bands are
September 16th Beautiful Nothing (Genre Alt Rock,) Burlington/Toronto
September 22nd Voltang (Raunchified and shredded sounds of beer-flavoured rock’n’roll) Hamilton
September 30th Aitch (Genre Acoustic Rock) Burlington
Share this with everyone you know and get the word out. It’s success is dependent on Us and will only succeed with our support!
