 Backstreet South, who have toyed with live music in the past and featured Dated Delay and Billie Vegas play during Street Wheelers, brought in Vancouver bands Quit the City and My Mother the Carjacker, Aug. 17. Quit the City Backstreet South combined elements of Queens of the Stone Age with Weezer and the Jefferson Airplane for about 30 people, Aug. 17.

 The laid down a solid groove in their tight set and features, of all things, a steel guitar screaming out the occasional wailing guitar solo.

They ran the gamut from Weezerish, catchy pop punk, songs, to more extended psychedelic jams reminiscent of Jefferson Airplane, a touch of the Rolling Stones and by the end of their set were in a Queens of the Stone Age mood.

Their  two guitarists and bassist took turns singing lead and bobbed their heads to the bet.
 Unfortunately I missed My Mother the Carjacker.
