"review: mylein sheaths/sub-linguals/the throwaways @ palomino 09/27"

There is nothing better than a Thursday night rock show. The streets are a little quieter, as are the bars; you can actually hear your friend blab on about their latest romance or anti-romance. Tomorrow is Friday and you are pretty sure that even if you get super drunk tonight you’ll be able to zombie your way through the workday. Yes, Thursday night rock shows have a certain charm to them that the weekend just doesn’t bring. This Thursday I arrived at the Palomino in great anticipation of seeing headliners Myelin Sheaths, Beatroute’s August issue pin-ups. Two of Calgary’s other favourites, The Throwaways and Sub-Linguals were the opening acts.

Having only seen The Throwaways once, probably over a year ago, I was super excited to see their happy little faces again. Perfect bubblegum punk rock is the only way to describe this trio. I mean, their sound check song was Surfin’ Safari (perhaps a tribute to the Beach Boys who happened to being playing in Edmonton the same evening?). Their tunes were completely infectious and you can’t help but fall in love with lead singer, Jessie, whose California girl smile wins you over when she speeds her way through an Undertones cover. These kids are young, but they play fast and fun – they are gonna be around for awhile.

Sub-Linguals took the stage with their unprecedented demonic powers after The Throwaways packed up to go chew Bubbalicious and drink Coca-Cola. - New Canadian Modern
