Derby Dames have fun with music and art

E-mail Print PDF

Lethbridge Roller Derby Guild, The Deathbridge Derby Dames, brought a lot of people together in music and art, Aug. 18 at the Owl Acoustic Lounge. They were raising a few extra dollars for their season and featured several local bands including Church and Lustre Creame as well as a new band called Shipbreaker.Lustre Creame drummer Chris Lipinski helps out Leigh Doerksen for the Derby Dames.

 I arrived in time for Church, featuring Leigh Doerksen, playing psychedelic blues music and Lustre Creame’s drummer Chris Lipinski who stepped up though he had never heard the songs before.

 He did a great job, keeping up with Doerksen’s wild guitar playing.

He kent down in between chords and crazy solos to make strange sounds by tweaking his effects pedals. He played a mostly original set, but through in a Sam Roberts cover for a taste of “real blues,” before making way for Lustre Creame.

 Lustre Creame put on an entertaining though brief set featuring  originals, music, a couple tracks from their latest Cd including the Alice In Chainsish “Where Do I Go From Here.” They also added a very cool version of the Allman Brothers’ “Whipping Post,” during which Aaron Trozzo sang lead while making full use of his cool double necked guitar.

A good sized crowd enjoyed the show and bought several pieces of art up for the silent auction, some of them were created by the Derby Dames themselves.
