It is always a pleasure to see the Sadies live, but The Sheepdogs almost stole the show during their special rescheduled show, Monday, June 27, in the Geomatic Attic parking lot.

While Treeline opened with a typically strong set of original country music, Saskatoon’s the Sheepdogs showed why they are  finalists in Rolling Stone magazine’s “Choose the Cover” contest.

The Sheepdogs started off slow, setting a laid back, soulful ’70s groove and slowly picked up the tempo. There were harmonized guitars and vocals aplenty,  a beautiful groove, excellent, soulful melodies and southern rock riffs that brought the 200 some people in attendance, getting eaten alive by mosquitos, back to the mid ’70s.The Sheepdogs’ lead guitarist Leot Hanson.

“I Don’t Know,” was a highlight of their set which ended with the Lynard Skynardish “Southern Dreaming.”

The Sadies, who had to reschedule the show back in February because Dallas Good broke his leg, didn’t have much time for talking.

“We’re trying to play as many songs as possible before the sun goes down,” said Dallas Good midway through the set, which ran the gamut from Ventures/ Shadowy Men From a  Shadowy Planet style twangy instrumentals to the Sadies brand of original psychedelic country.

Travis Good looked possessed as he sawed away at his amplified fiddle for a couple gospel and then wound down the set just before sundown with a couple old country tinged numbers.
