 I caught the end of local metal band Pentitentz, who played a big, loud dark and distorted set of  loud, muddy, distortion filled metal music with shades of bands like Pantera and White Zombie.

 The ladies of pain, Perception of Pain were up next with an aggressive and tight set of more classic metal, though without guitar solos.

 Guitarist vocalist Tanessa von Meisel, drummer Colleen Spence and new bassist Zöe played a solid set. Spence’s drumming was amazing as she thundered away at her kit and rang her cowbell like it was the end of days. They were a little more subdued than usual as they had their kids in the audience, who helped them load out their equipment after their set.

 After that East Vancouver punk band the Shit Talkers took the stage with another tight set of original, loud, ferocious  original music from their two CDS reminiscent of band like Hole and L7. So there were plenty of gang vocals and snarling guitar.

 They put on an exciting set as usual, “ Eww” was a highlight as was “All My Friends” and their song about living in East Vancouver.
