A brand new line up of Winnipeg blues rockers the Perpetrators  played an outstanding sold out show, Jason Nowicki of the Perpetrators had the crowd hopping. Photo By Richard AmeryApril 30 at the Slice with David Newberry and Treeline with special guest Sean Brewer.
I arrived in the middle of Newberry’s set. He was playing some upbeat folk rock with a little bit of lap steel guitar from guitarist Jason Lamb. The set included some familiar tracks from his new CD ‘When We Learn The Things We Need To Learn.’
Treeline have perfected the alt country sound they have been working on. They kept the audience on their feet with their upbeat country fried folk roots. Sean Brewer from Sean Brewer and the Switchmen added some extra lead guitar and some banjo solos.
 The Perpetrators, who always seem to have a new lineup every time they come to Lethbridge, worked up a head of steam early as they launched into most of their last studio album ‘Tow Truck.’
 Drummer Brad Ferguson and bassist Ken McMahon make this version of the Perpetrators one of the best I’ve seen, though theDavid Newberry and  James Lamb. Photo by Richard Ameryy drowned out frontman /guitarist Jason Nowicki who suppled endless energy and lots of sick playing, especially on the slide. They drew a lot of dancers to the floor.
 They played a couple old standards, like my favourite ‘Six Pack’ and blues standard  ‘Rock Me Baby.’ They also drew  their last set of the night to a close with an exceptional version of the Rolling Stones’ ‘Off the Hook.’
