Toronto Has a PUNKGASM

WoW! Don Cabellero were in town last night at Lee’s Palace promoting their new CD, Punkgasm. Baltimore’s Ponytail got things off to punchy start.

This was the first I’ve heard of Ponytail but I’m sure to look for more. To say that they were experimental or math rock wouldn’t do them justice. Their vocals and sound are hard to place. They played a heated set that even Don Cab fanned out on but soon the headliners hit the stage.

Don Cab brought out a couple of teddy bears but this was only a small peace offering. They proceeded to onslaught Toronto with their form of mathrock and banter. Mel Gibson, Freedom, Secrets… Damon Che’s rants can be just as humourous as the SCTV character the band is named after. Weighing more on the last two CD’s (Punkgasm and World Class Listening Problem) Don Cab more than reproduced their albums on stage. So glad I was able to see them play again.

Both Ponytail and Don Cabellero play again in Hamilton at the Casbah tonight if you missed out on the fun last night…
