Motorleague crush it despite poor attendance

Unfortunately the long awaited return of the Motorleague at the Slice was the one that suffered. 

Though the real loser were the people who missed the show.

That included me, who missed most of their short, loud, entertaining set, but arrived back in time for an energetic rendition of  Cape Breton. There were plenty of catchy riffs, an exorbitant amount of energy and shouted along harmonies.

 I did catch the Lethbridge debut of Toronto noise rock band Dying Arts.

They played a loud, frenetic, feedback drenched set of alternative noise rock along the lines of the Pixies. They had  a lot of intensity, but their abrasive sound gave way to more melodic fare including “80s Radio Hit.”
