 It was a beautiful  day, May 12, almost too beautiful to  be in a bar in the afternoon. But I stopped by the new northside  location of the Smokehouse to see what it was like and to catch a few acts 13 to Go were among the local acts playing a fundraiser for the humboldt Broncos, May 12.

This one wasn’t as well attended as usual, but the more metal/ hard rock edge to the event was a lot of fun. I missed most of the bands, but caught a few of them.

A slightly tweaked Mark Hall band aka Undefined with Raz Bruce on drums played an array of classic rock including Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” and Bad Company’s “Can’t Get Eno

ugh.”


Local punk band 13 to Go, who were borrowing a new bassist, waited in vain for an audience that never came and I was only able to stay for their first two songs— super tight and extremely loud versions of the Ramones “ Blitzkrieg Bop” and Blink -182’s “What’s My Age Again.”

I returned later in the night  for local metal band Tyrants of Chaos’s ear blisteringly loud set of original epic ’80s style power metal.

Sheldon Arvay stepped in for the gig on guitar as one of their guitarists was in Calgary, but played with them like he had always been with them as he easily traded finger blistering leads and big riffs with Curtiss Vaselenak.

As usual, frontman Phil Sirias, with a newly shorn head, wailed and screeched like the bastard child of Judas Priests’ Rob Halford and Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. being tortured in a dungeon.
