Who: The Headstones, with Honeysuckle Serontina
What: The Snow Scene Extreme Sport Series Concerts
Where: The Boot Pub
When: Saturday, Dec. 14
The Headstones have never been recognized for their grace and finesse at playing nicely in the sandbox. Theyve kept to themselves, content to build a loyal legion of fans instead of stroking the egos of fellow musicians or industry. With their hard-hitting lyrics, and feverishly infectious music they are one heck of a charismatic stage presence.
Through five albums, break-ups, bus trashings, drug problems, jailings, and pretty much every other band-threatening scenario, the Headstones have honed a particular sound that has carved them a place in the annals of CanRock history.
Their back with a brand new album, The Oracle Of Hi-Fi. Lead vocalist, Hugh Dillon, guitarist Trent Carr, bassist Tim White and drummer Dale Harrison are throwing caution to the wind and dirt in the eyes of any disbelievers this is the Headstones.
Tickets are $23 and for that you also get the Vancouver-based explosive and raw punk rockers Honeysuckle Serontina. $1 from every ticket sold goes to the Province Empty Stocking Fund. Call the Snow Scene Extreme Sport Concert hotline on 604-938-2769.
