So we’re turning 7 next week. 7 years of every Monday staying up way past our bed times to give 15 bands a shot at fame and fortune. We’ve given away around $70,000 total and there’s no signs of stopping.

We started celebrating our birthday 2 years ago with the help of No Flyers Please and last year with Tupperware Remix Party. This year we decided to grab one of our favorite cover bands Too Tough to Die (Ramones) to host the evening. Get ready to sing along and eat some cake!

We’ve had spin offs in Calgary, Charlottetown and Moncton and talks about Montreal and Toronto. 

We’ve helped nurture countless bands and musicians in the local scene by offering them a stage and some beer to get started on.

We’ve seen some great bands and some shitty ones, we’ve been covered in beer and covered you in beer. We’ve drank out of shoes and hats and rolled around in dirt. We’ve been hit with cookie sheets and dressed in drag. We’ve chipped teeth and bled and we’ve had a great time doing it.

Here’s to another stupid year.

What a god damn great night.

Everyone looked absolutely fabulous in their outfits. Like a Motorcycle got all dolled up in their prettiest dresses, Matt from Catholic Gaydar won my prize for best dressed. The Dongas win the prize for being the sassiest on stage. The Odd socks were the best dressed all together.

Cursed Arrows walked away with the $400 prize. They’re skipping town soon and give a really nice speech after winning the money. That was really nice and we wish you all the best with everything you do.

New prize on the wheel as of last week is “Crowed surf like Myles Deck” the drummer from Children of the sun won it then Stop Motion Massacre got it and they one by one jumped on to the tiny drunk crowed left over at the end of the night. Really there’s no other way that night could have ended better. I really appreciate how fun our audience can be. 

I’ll also spread my appreciation to guest photographer Angelina Coccimiglio who got a lot of amazing shots of your ugly mugs. If you haven’t taken a look yet I advise it.

Here’s who played:
Food Fight
King Fabulous
The .Gifs – spit beer on Adrian
Catholic Gaydar
Pizza Party – Bill Kidney
The Odd Socks – Hit Adrian with a cookie sheet
The Cannisters
Like a Motorcycle – pick a hand
The Fat Stupids (As The Dongas)
Cursed Arrows – The Money!
Geordi Vision
Children of the Sun – Myles Deck!
Andrew Neville – Shitty LP
Stop Motion Massacre – Myles Deck!

Next week we’re back to dressing like real men, or are we. $200 ($100 must go) back on the wheel and Blink 182 cover band A New Hope are our hosts. They played R4$ about 2 months ago and got a great response. I knew all the words to songs I forgot all about. Come drown in nostalgia.

That was a really fun night.Oceanic were pretty sweet and are welcome back any time, Boys Boys Boys blew me the fuck away, as Craig said they set the bar pretty high, they were quick, pro, and brought some heavy shit. SissyDude was pretty magical showing off all those songs for the first time. I hope they won a couple people over to go see the shows starting Thursday through Sunday.  Children of The Sun were also pretty sweet, I think they’ll be back next week too!.One of the best parts of the night was when Jacques landed on the Myles Deck and the Fuzz set list and Craig suggested he take his shirt off and jump into the crowed, and he did, but unlike Myles Deck the audience caught him and it was awesome.Here’s who played:Kink’s Cover Band (Bonus $100)Some dude/girl (crowed surf like Myles Deck)Windom’s GaydarOceanicFat StupidsBoys Boys BoysGeordi Vision (Shitty CD, Loco Live w/o case)SissyDude (Hit Adrian with a cookie sheet)Children of the SunPanties (Hit Adrian with a cookie sheet)Blasphemous MutilationNext week is Hissyfit!
