Bombchan Live January 20th 2017

On Friday night my Cuz and I went to see a friends band called Bombchan at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts. This show was part of an art show by artist Kevin Kunce who is a friend of the bands. Kevin had his art displayed on the walls of the gallery and had a good turnout for his art show. Kevin's art is pretty decent, I am no art expert by any means, but it seemed a lot of people took an interest in his art. Good on you Kevin. Kevin's art exhibit runs through until February 10th. I too was impressed.

As for Bombchan, I haven't seen them play in a while and it was what I was expecting, although a little lower in volume then usual with the show being held in an art gallery. The band which consists of Mike Park on slide guitar and vocals, Ayla Brook on guitar, Karie Brown on bass and Grant Stovel on drums sounded better then the last couple of times I have seen them. Their music is blues based style reminiscent of T-Model Ford and RL Burnside. The band rarely if ever rehearse which is a shame because if they did this band could really be a tight unit. Nonetheless it was a good show and a lot of fun. Free beers always help! Good times!!!

In other news...Ayla Brook who plays guitar in Bombchan just recently released his first solo album in eight years. The album is called "(I Don't Want To Hear Your) Break Up Songs", Ayla is backed up by his five piece band The Sound Men and is available through his bandcamp page and iTunes. It's a great sounding album and well worth picking up. The album can also be streamed on Spotify and Soundcloud. To hear the album click on either link.
