Whole lot of rock with Damage Incorporated and Train Wreck at the place

 I jumped right into work, hours after getting back to Lethbridge after my most excellent vacation on Outlaw Cruise West. And I paid for it the next day but there were a couple of can’t miss shows, Thursday, Nov. 10.

Metallica Tribute Damage Inc. celebrated their  tenth anniversary at the Place, Nov. 10 with plenty of local support on stage.

 I missed most of Good Time Charlie’s opening set.


 I was in time to see Breanne Urban trade her cowboy hat for her rock and roll hat with Train Wreck.

She and band mates James Nagy, guitarist Kelly Klimchuk and Scott Morris focussed on the powerhouse female vocalists of the ’late ’80s and early  ’90s.

 They opened with Alannah Myles’ “ Still Got This Thing For You.”


 They covered a lot of ground as they also tackled Loverboy’s ’80s hit  “Turn Me Loose,” and reworked  Blondies’ “ Heart of Glass. Their set showcased  Urban’s powerful pipes. They went grunge for Hole’s “ Celebrity Skin,” and Alanis Morisette’s angst -ridden hit  “You Oughta Know.”

 They also tackles  some classic rock from Billy Squier which featured a drum solo and a bass solo.


 Their cover of Sass Jordan’s “ High Road Easy” was a highlight,” and they dug into the well of ’80s power ballads for the Scorpions “ Still Loving You.”

Drummer James Nagy was doing double duty as Damage Incorporated ’s drummer.

 Damage incorporated The Metallica tribute focused on early Metallica, particularly the “Masters of Puppets” record.


 I missed the first part of their set, but returned in time for their namesake “Damage inc.”


They played note prefect solos and Mark Antony’s lead vocals were spot on if not a little more melodic than James Hetfield’s. They were on fire for their tight, high octane set of vintage thrash metal.


The drumming was thunderous. I left as they finished “Seek and Destroy”  and had just begun tearing into “Master of Puppets.”
