Go For the Eyes go for a ’60s feel

I caught just the last song of Winnipeg rock band the Revival at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Feb. 15.Go For the Eyes’ Elise Roller. Photo by Richard Amery

 Their last songs was an energetic upbeat rock number which had an ’80s and ’90s feel to them.
 But the band I wanted to see was the always fabulous Go For The Eyes.

For this visit they had more of a ’60s sound and featured lots of appealing organ played by Elise Roller. They showed their influences from ’60s rock to sultry pop with just a touch of blues. They played music off their most recent Cd “Six Through 12” and some brand new songs.

 They were excellent as always. Roller has a fantastic voice which complemented guitarist Jeff Turner’s vocals.

 As usual she ended the show by ordering a shot and using the shot glass to play a noisy, messy slide guitar solo, ending a steadily building, energetic show on a high note.
