This past humid Saturday afternoon, a bunch of Halifax bands carried gear, a generator and sweet summer snacks to the old lookout on the Polly's Cove Trail, a rugged path with a beautiful view of Peggy's Cove. Organized by Matt Peters, the Polly's Cove Summer Show featured eight sets of folk, rock, sludge and electronica on rock beds. Real rock and roll. This reporter (me) slept in until 3:30pm, so I missed Escape Tapes and Sledge, but after grilling hot dogs and drinking coffee, I snapped a few photos as the day moved between light and grey. It was a pretty sick show.
Check out all of these bands online or at an upcoming show (I'll let you know). And this just in: Surveillance released a new video today in anticipation of their upcoming seven-inch (check out Dave Burns' label Various Records, you distortion-loving freaks). Memories of the rock.
