Cool show alert: The Neil and the Damage Done, a Neil Young tribute night, at the Crocodile Apriil 1Monday, February 22nd, 2010
Neil Young is rock ‘n’ roll icon and on April 1 several local musicians will be paying tribute to the man who is perhaps the greatest Canadian musical export ever (sorry Bryan Adams) at the Crocodile as part of The Neil and the Damage Done.
Truckasaurus, Spanish for 100, See Me River and Feral Children are a few of the locals on the bill. I’m particularly excited to hear what Spanish for 100 has up their sleeve in regards to a Neil Young cover. Maybe if I ask them nicely they will give one of their Neil Young covers a test run at their next local show, which happens to be the first night of Ear Candy’s Birthday Bash 2010 on March 13 at the Sunset Tavern.
Headlining the show is the My My Hey Heys, a group consisting of Mike Spine (At the Spine, Global Seepej Records, etc) on guitar and vocals, Swiss/Argentinean guitarist Martin Flowers, drummer Jeff Gall (Annunaki), and Aaron Semer (The Plains) on bass and backing vocals. The band was formed last year during the first Neil Young Tribute night, which was held at the Tractor Tavern. According to a press release, the My My Hey Heys play “vintage, edgy, and generally more concise interpretations of Crazy Horse-era Neil Young songs.” The full lineup and ticket info is posted after the jump.
