Lethbridge shows native talent at Eagles Hall

E-mail Print PDF

It was an ‘Indian Summer’ at a big show at the Eagles’ Hall on the north side, Saturday, June 19.
 A decent sized crowd sat placidly and watched some  energetic native talent as a variety of duos, trios and full bands played a variety of different music.

The two-month old  group played numerous popular ’90s grunge and rock hits as well as some interesting  originals which showed off lead singer Amanda’s impressively loud vocals.

Richard Ameryt, playing Misfits/Ramones/White Zombie influenced music  which could be best described as the soundtrack to a zombie  attack.

The three were dressed as pale-faced, blood stained zombies and the singer, clad in top hat and bloody smock howled into a microphone decorated by skulls. The drummer pounded  the life out of a massive drum kit which dwarfed him as he pounded away with thunderous rage. They got the audience out of their seats and on the feet , banging their heads.

A lot of them eventually wandered out into the streets where the police showed up at about 10:30 p.m., to send them to trickling back inside for the rest of the energetic set.


An interesting father-son duo, the Johnny Rains band were next with something slightly softer. They played some decent reggae/ska/ profanity laden rap music for the audience who seemed to be enjoying it.

The bassist bounced all over the stage, while programming drums on a keyboard at the front of the stage.
To finish the night, local grunge, detuned nü metal band SevenDay Sin took the stage amongst a blanket of smoke and lasers.
 This was the first gig with new guitarist Geoff Stuckey and bassist Shane Love who both locked right in for a set of upbeat modern rock. They put on an excellent show and sounded tight, displaying a lot of energy.
