Motorleague wakes up a crowd on a Sunday

 The Motorleague at the Slice, Nov. 28 Photo by Richard AmeryI usually try to take Sunday nights off, but seeing as I was out five nights in a row this week, I thought why not make it six?

Especially because Moncton rockers the Motorleague were in town to play the Slice, Nov. 28 and I missed their opening set  with Grady on Tuesday.

 I was not disappointed. After a brief set by two members of Toques and Beards, who were playing their own brand of alt-country music, later to be joined by the Motorleague’s drummer, Ryan McDonald, The Motorleague was up.

 They played an intense, hour-long set of original balls to the wall rock and roll, sounding like Kiss (in sound and sans make-up) meeting  the Kings of Leon over a case of Red Bull and a couple shots of adrenaline.

 They played an ear-bleeding set of rock and bounced all over the stage, but still played a supremely tight set full of energy, some sweet harmonized guitar solos and boundless energy.Fans including Roxxi Rupps dance to the Motorleague. Photo by Richard Amery

Lustre Creame closed the show, and I always marvel at how the local psychedelic stoner rock trio can play such complex music, while  being half cut.

 This show was no exception, with lots of big guitar riffs and some energetic melodies  and unstoppable drumming.
