Puttin’ on the Foil putting on a good time

A long weekend crowd of approximately 40 people stopped by the slice to party with Calgary country/ punk band Puttin On The Foil, Aug. 4.

A caught the end of  an open set by  blues rock band The 425s who wound things up with a cover of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s “Blue on Black.”
 Puttin’ On the Foil always equal a good time.

 They played an excellent show of loud, raucous, ribald rock and roll tinged with country.

 The opened with the rollicking “Shitshow,” and followed up with plenty of hilarious, rough edged humour and songs like “ I Want to Get Drunk and Naked With you” and “Beer and Weed,” and the always popular  cover of “ The Rodeo Song.”

They played music from their two CDs as well as a few from an upcoming CD including“ Who I Am.”
 They also covered “Simple Man.”

 While their music is wild, straight ahead, politically incorrect rock and roll, on the more normal side of things, they played  “The Fishing song“ and “ Sweet Prairie Vixen.”

Musically, the trio played a real tight set featuring some solid rock and roll chops, with a touch of metal and punk energy.
