EVENT: One Bad Son, The Wild & Iconoclast @ Maverick’s

The day after St-Patrick’s day is usually associated with calling in sick and stepping around puddles of green hurl, but this year (and please for every year after) it was all about rock & roll.  Ottawa bad boys of rock and longtime collaborators, Iconoclast, teamed up with Kelowna-based The Wild to rile the crowd up for tour headliners One Bad Son, who in turn blew the roof off of Maverick’s and brought signs of life back to a deeply hungover Rideau Street.

EVENT: Dear Blackwolf @ Irene’s

On a blustery March night, Dear Blackwolf (Arturo Portocarrero and Joseph Perry) took to the stage at Irene’s in Ottawa to drive home the final leg of their tour with The Wicked Mercy and Brandon Allen.  Described as a “high octane blues rock due” they blend roots and rock genres to create something guitarist Joseph calls rumble music.  Photographed by Alexander Vlad.
