L’omelette mix a blend of musical styles

 Though I was deafened by Black Mastiff at the Owl Acoustic lounge, I was glad I didn’t give Calgary’s l’Omelette a miss at the Slice, Saturday, Nov. 20.

I missed Makiisma but l’omelette were a pleasant surprise as they featured  Peter and the Wolves Pete Cormier behind the drums and Wolves’ saxophonist Meg Thompson seamlessly switching from acoustic guitar, singing lead vocals and saxophone.

 They were a weird, appetizing mix of progressive rock, jazz, pop music and ’60s psychedelic music.


 They played something that sounded a lot like Billy Eilish early on last set of the night.


 They played a lot of experimental music  which went heavy on the groove, punctuated by Thompson’s sizzling saxophone solos.


 They had a strong pop bent, but showed a heavier side by turning Back Sabbath’s “War Pigs” into a jazz number.
