Give it a Spin

Never would I have thought it would be so difficult to fill a roster when booking a venue. As I prep for The Noble Rogues' August 21 farewell gig at Rivoli for our bassist, Ian, I have tried, with great difficulty to offer a number of local bands a no-strings-attached stage to play and possibly even a bit of beer money.  The one positive that's come out of all this is that, in scouring the TO music scene for descent bands to check with, I'm coming up with a lot of solid sounds coming out of Hog town.

Today, I got in touch with a band called Revolvers.  They're a fantastic throwback to when rock and roll was more raw, and in my opinion, more real.  They've drawn a little attention from local rags, Now & Eye, but have managed to fly under my radar for quite some time.  I wish I could tell you more, but for now, all I can say is that I like what I hear.

You wanna know a bit about these boys? Brother, you ain't alone.
