E-mail Print PDF

Lethbridge showed their love for records and community radio station CKXU, Sept. 15. They had numerous vendors, lots of records and of course and some excellent live music. Hundreds of people wandered through Galt Gardens throughout the day to take in all of those things.Jesse Northey looks at Love and Records while playing bass for Brenna Lowrie.

 The Hibikiya drummers got things going after 11:30 a.m. with some intense percussion.

 Innovative and expressive Lethbridge instrumental group Clockwork Towns were next with a lot of ambient guitars and keyboards easing everybody into the afternoon.

 Red Rum Triumph carried on in the laid back vibe with nice vocals from Steve Foord and Kelsey Jesperson and their usual strong set of songs about murder, zombies and even a touch of gospel.

 Big Jim and the Twins aka John Greenshields and Lustre Creame’s rhythm section Chris Lipinski and Geoff Orriss were in a a psychedelic mood, with a loud set of blues influenced rock music with lots of jamming and guitar solos.

There was a lot more percussion frCKXU's Love and Records was very popular this year. Photo by Richard Ameryom the duo with Matt Groenheide and Jodi Bartell with Bartell playing Caribbean rhythm on steel drum while Groenheide sat on a cajon pounding out extra rhythm.

Meanwhile Lethbridge improv troupe wandered through the audience throughout the day playing some of their favourite improv games with the crowd including  The Irish Drinking Song, and DaDoo Ron Ron, for which they asked for suggestions form the audience.

 Edmonton‘s Bonspiel plugged in and turned it up for a raucous set of three chord roots tinged rock and roll. They had a lot of energy and a lot of catchy hooks.
