Residents of Brazil Street (St. John’s, NL) didn’t know what they had comin’ to them when the “Party On Da Amazon” Backyard BBQ Bash got underway last Sunday (August 24th, 2014).
The tightly squeezed hill of row houses rumbled with the sounds of seven very diverse acts ranging from Punk Rock and Noise to Psych Rock and Hip-Hop.
The Grubbies’ jam-space is a basement deep in Halifax’s residential north end. The stuffy room is decorated with mattresses propped up against windows, pillows and egg cartons strapped to vents, old coffee cups, tall cans of beer, and coke bottles. Wires hang from the ceiling and cover the floor. It’s not messy, but it’s lived in. And it’s the jam-spot of more than a few local bands; artists like the Saffrons, Walrus, Shadow Folk, Robert Loveless and Scott Nicks practice in the space.
