Concerts in Ottawa in 2017: Wild Side, Iron Reagan and Power Trip at The Brass Monkey
Over the next weeks and months, I will once again put some concert reports online. The first concert I have been attending recently was a vivid crossover thrash metal show with Wild Side, Iron Reagan and Power Trip at The Brass Monkey in Ottawa. Even though the location is a nice bar with a great stage, pool tables and lots of space, it's also about two hours away from home if you have to use public transport. Thankfully, I'm living in Canada. Even though the show was scheduled to start around seven, the first band hadn't even started to play when I arrived around ninety minutes late because of traffic issues. In Germany, half of the concert would have already been over since groups start playing on time. For once, being late turns out being something positive. But it's an exceptional case, so don't do that at school or work! Anyway, I arrived and left at the perfect moment and had two hours of non-stop entertainment. Please take a look at the following pictures and descriptions for more information.
Wild Side: This hardcore band from Niagara Falls, Ontario, put up a great show and the crowd participated enthusiastically in numerous circle pits and weird dances. It was one of the better opening acts in recent memory.
Iron Reagan: The quintet from Richmond, Virginia delivered the goods despite particularly difficult circumstances. Their drummer had been denied entry to Canada and the band would have almost canceled the show. Thankfully, three different drummers from local bands and tour mates Power Trip filled in and the band offered a half hour of power. Even though the singer seemed to be slightly wasted, his performance was to the point. I had come for this group in particular and really liked the show. I bought two of Iron Reagan's albums and a new shirt for surprisingly fair prices that night.
Power Trip: The thrash metal band from Dallas, Texas played a solid show even though I liked their music less than what Wild Side and Iron Reagan had delivered earlier that night. The group was clad in fog and it was actually quite hard to see them and take an acceptable picture. This was the best I could do.« Trying to brave the storm - A review of Suicide Silence's ''Suicide Silence''Hit and miss on all levels - A review of Nokturnal Mortum's ''22 Years Among the Sheep'' »
