I have to give it to the fine gentleman in Bad Religion. Not only have they created some of my all-time favorite records, they also seem to love the East Coast music scene. First they picked Halifax’s The Hemingways to open up the show at the Forum and now they bestowed that same honor on Moncton’s The Motorleague when they play in Quebec.
Bottom line: The Motorleague - behind the strength of their new record, Black Noise - are here to remind you that rock and roll needs some swagger. It needs to be loud and when the boys open up for BR and Alexisonfire, they get the chance to melt the faces off a ton of fanatical punks. Given how stoked the band is to be playing with two bands they love, here’s betting the NB vets will burn down the stage.
For the local readers, The Motorleague are playing a few warm-up gigs on they way to Quebec, including a Hali set at Gus’s with The Cuban Assassins and The Cobra Jets.
