During the changeover I could see that we were in for another change of pace with Tobeatic. There were now six musicians on stage, including up to three guitarists and a keyboardist with a bunch of effects boxes at hand. This could get interesting. But I wasn’t prepared for the total onslaught of the band in full flight. Tobeatic were like a gruesome collision between Uriah Heep and Motörhead, creating a glorious, riff-crazed racket that pushed beyond psych-rock territory into a truly dangerous realm. The now-packed room picked up on the vibe as well—people were starting to go off. The band's momentum was enough to shake off a kick-pedal disaster late in the set, get rolling again and power through to the end. Afther their deranged headrush of a set, I can't wait to catch them again. I'm still trying to process what I saw. - difficult music


By this point the Rickshaw was really filling out nicely which was good to see because often times at the Rickshaw a local show can have the place feeling a bit empty. I can't remember if they had the seats blacked out, but that always helps. Tobeatic took the stage and they were new to me. They did the stoner rock thing with an organ off to the side that made them a 6 man band, and these 6 guys absolutely destroyed the stage. I had no idea what I was getting into before they played and I literally had to scrape my jaw off the floor when they were done. I'm pretty sure for a couple weeks after this show all I was telling my friends (at least the ones that are interested in the local scene) was to check out Tobeatic. They didn't just stick to one sound either, they'd be doing one of those stoner rock jams and then just blast into some thrash punk for the next song, it was unreal. Luckily Black Wizard was next, because there isn't too many bands in this city that would be able to follow such a great performance. But the Whizz was up for the challenge and on top of their game while playing all the old classics that I came to hear. The mosh pit busted out huge and it was hair hair everywhere. And in that moment when a huge venue filled up and rocked out hard for a line-up of local bands I was really proud of my city. - http://undergroundvancouver.blogspot.ca/
