Scores North started picking up the slack  as far as hosting bigger concerts since the Blarney Stone closed in July.

They began with a couple of strong new tracks, “Plastic Bottle,” and their first Cars inspired single “Fa Fa Phone” and took off from there with an extremely tight including  a lot of their more reggae inspired songs including a crowd favourite “Ska Sally.” The quiescent crowd finally got out on the dance  floor for an outstanding cover of Coldplay’s “Clocks,” which got them warmed up for the main event— Ill Scarlett.

Ill Scarlett laid down a steady reggae/rock groove and ear piercing volume which kept the dance floor hopping and had quite a few people singing along with them.

The band members leaped all over the stage and didn’t miss a beat during their tight  and energetic set.

They added a cover of Queen’s ”Fat Bottomed Girls” and even exhibited some very cool vocal harmonies before launching into an Eminem cover.
 They kept the energy levels up and the crowd cheering and moving.
