I jogged with my boy to the truck and got out of there quickly. They were good, though, weren't they?

Just wanted to chime in on the Avatar show at the Palace this past weekend. It was amazing, I don't know if there is a better live band out there right now. Pure energy, talent, creativity, maybe the best in-sync headbanging I've seen and some catchy ass riffs to tie it all together. Can't wait for their next album, was doing my best to not be a total fanboy!

Also, Devin Townsend on the acoustic guitar felt like a real treat. What a unique show that was, love me some heavy Devy.

I was hoping they had that problem solved. After the Tea Party I just hung out with some friends in the casino for 1/2 hour, then left and there was no line to get out. It was also a Friday and the Casino absorbed a lot of the concert crowd.


Maybe with all the construction they can negotiate a few more exits, I also don't think there are any parking restrictions in the neighborhoods areound the casino. It's otherwise my favourite concert venue so I hope they get it sorted out.

Amazing day at the folk fest yesterday. Cedric Bunside lit up the Field Law stage followed by an absolutely face melting guitar set from Mdou Moctar. I have been to hundreds of live shows but that man did things to the guitar I have never seen before. Wow.

For this ONE TIME ONLY, David Hillyard & the Rocksteady 7 are coming to Calgary from New York for TWO SHOWS at the Ironwood!!

DOUBLE BILL: Jory Kinjo/ Dave Hillyard & the Rocksteady 7
Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10 at 9pm
$25 Cover
403-269-5581 for reservations

The band features Dave Hillhard & Larry McDonald. You may recognize Dave as the sax player/leader for the Slackers. Larry is one of the most legendary percussionists on the planet, whose resume includes such artists as Gil Scott Heron, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Taj Mahal, Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer and the list goes on..

Rocksteady 7 began through the meeting of Hillyard and veteran percussionist Larry McDonald at a Skatalites concert and reflects their common love of Ska, Reggae, Jazz, and Latin music.

Hillyard is a music veteran who is credited with helping spread the gospel roots ska, reggae, and Jamaican jazz in America in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He is currently the
saxophonist of NYC’s classic ska group, the Slackers and has also played with Hepcat and Rancid amongst 1000s of concerts and 100s of recordings.

McDonald, who just turned 82, is a living legend, part of the first generation of Jamaican musicians to create Ska and Reggae music in the 1950s through the 1970s. He played with Carlos Malcolm Afro-Jamaicans and played on numerous classic reggae recordings such as the conga breaks on Toots and the Maytals classic, Funky Kingston as well as tracks by Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Lee Perry. In the 1970s, McDonald moved to the United States and played with Taj Mahal and Gil Scott Heron. Most recently, in 2017, he has been on tour with Lee Perry.

Since their first album in 1999, Playtime (Epitaph), Rocksteady 7 has slowly built up a local and international following and over the years have received recognition in diverse music scenes. The title track of their first album was a Jazzy Nyabingi that appeared on the legendary punk compilation, Give Em The Boot. Jazziz Magazine noted "Hillyard can play." The African Beat magazine called the Rocksteady 7, "Real Musical Revolutionaries Who Cut The Competition."

Over the years, Rocksteady 7 has grown to a collective of numerous musicians based in New York City, California, and Europe and they have played 30-40 concerts a year in Europe and North America.
