ULSU Freshfest features rock and roll and the Deaner

E-mail Print PDF

Freshfest was off the hook last week at the University of Lethbridge, Sept. 7 and 8.

 I was only able to catch CalgarThe Static shift playing Freshfest at the u of L, Sept. 8. photo by Richard Ameryy power trio the Static Shift on Saturday after a brief intro from the weekend’s host  the Deaner from the FUBAR movies.

The Deaner  had fun checking the the two microphones on stage and pretending to be out of breath because of it before promising “I’m really actually in shape. I could do cartwheels across the stage if I wanted.”’
 The Static Shift looked and sounded like they stepped right out of the ’70s with long hair, flared bell bottoms and paisley shirts.

 They played, big, beefy, catchy riffs right out of the Black Sabbath, Foghat, Led Zeppelin and Grand Funk Railroad playbook. There was also wah wah pedal drenched guitar solos and lots of massive groove.The Deaner hosting Freshfest at the U of L, Sept. 8. Photo by Richard Amery
