herohill presents:: The Schomberg Fair & The Speaking Tongues

Throwing our Don King like hair and gold chains into the ring, the hill is giving this tour promotion idea a run. In theory, it’s a great way to get our name attached to some shows and get the crowds to turn up, but in reality, this is simply a way to get two great bands to play a bit bigger venue and on the same lineup here in Halifax.

 

Bottom line: The Schomberg Fair & The Speaking Tongues are both bad ass, mixing gospel, punk, swamp, garage rock, and blues with a swagger that slaps you in the chops. I know that style of music has had sort of a revival these last few years and thanks to festivals like the Deep Blues fest, people are starting to take notice of bands like The Black Diamond Heavies, but these two Canadian bands are doing it right. Throw in the fact they are terrific guys, and well, I’d say it’s a must that you show up to check them out.

 

Both bands are driving up and down the East Coast - four shows starting in St. John on Wednesday night - but for us the big night is Friday here in Halifax. I’m not a betting man, but I’d throw my duckets in if you asked me if the bands will absolutely burn up the stage at The Seahorse and leave bodies sweat soaked and broken. Add local rockers The Stance as the headline and hot damn do we have a show. Tickets are just $8, so you have no excuse.
