ARCHIVE - Jan-Mar 2004
20, 2004 - Feb. 19th Loud and Clear! - The
February 19th show at Zaphod Beeblebrox in Ottawa was, by all
accounts, one of the loudest and to-the-point shows seen at that
venue in a while.
Allaire and Criminal Intent bashed through the bulk of Allaire's
latest release "Crime and Punishment" in record time,
rarely stopping between songs to enjoy applause or swig a beer.
The Ramones-like speed of the set was only counter-balanced a
few times with a change of guitars and the odd quip by the sarcastic
few of Allaire's Town Cryers' songs were thrown in for good measure
and then poof... they were gone! Like traveling troubadours late
for their train.
band The Bush Pilots played a great set of country-inspired roots
rock and The Dunn Project followed with a somewhat experimental
set of polymelodic originals.
