"NLG gets a full release"

Gene was recently invited to the CD release of your math teacher’s favourite alt-metal/garage-punk band, and good friends of NLG, Carry the One. Seeing as at previous Carry the One shows, I have been politely asked by security to put my shirt back on, and to stop pouring beer on the band members, I knew it was going to be a good night.

We arrived just in time to see opening act Rule 27 taking the stage for their set of original estrogenious indie-pop joints. Apparently Rule 27 states that the two young ladies at the back of the dance floor, near the pillar, must make out for the entire set… they of course obliged. Other females in the crowd may have misinterpreted the rule, or been inspired by the two young ladies at the back of the dance floor, near the pillar, because they too seemed to take a fancy to one another. Come to think of it, maybe Rule 27 isn’t a rule at all, but just three girls who attract a somewhat liberal female crowd and play catchy tunes to accompany the visual stimuli.

After a short intermission, and the consumption of some sort of flaming beverage, it was time for some gradeschool addition as Carry the One took the stage. The summation of 1 drum set, 2 guitars, 1 base, and an infinite value of badass, CTO doesn’t take long to whip the crowd into an unequivocal frenzy. Their power series of greasy guitar licks, and expertly calculated percussive blows had Gene bouncing off fellow fans and fist pumping like a champion (fully clothed this time). At one point, a Dutch-named band member beckoned to the crowd, clearly asking for beer related theatrics, so Gene in typical fashion shoved a beer bottle in his mouth. My generous offer of libation, however, was declined by the tightly pantalooned guitarist… I guess I also did some misinterpreting that night. But all be told, the night was a success.

This was CTO’s last show as residents of Victoria, as they will be moving to Vancouver at the end of the month. Thus if you want to catch a glimpse of these guys in the future, your best bet is to check the smoking section in the grungiest of Vancouver watering holes.

PS- We will have a track up for your ears as soon as a select member of Carry the One figures out how to use the internet. - No Look Guns
