HPX 2010:: Wednesday

HPX 2010

In the slightly modified words of an extremely drunken Gus’ Pub patron the Ack and I had the pleasure of chatting with some time ago: what’s up with HPX 2010 guys, is it awesome? I know we’re only one day in, but it sounds like there was still some fun had last night, which bodes well for the rest of the week. What of herohill you ask, when will the Ack and I break our HPX 2010 duck? All signs are pointing to tonight at the Boxer The Horse/My Brightest Diamond/New Pornographers extravaganza at the Forum Multi-Purpose center, or as I know it, the “big-ass shed where the flea market used to be”. The flea market might still in fact be there, I don’t know, it’s been quite some time since we used to go there with herohill co-founder Shawn Lapaix looking for Mr. T-related VHS tapes. Seriously, if you aren’t up on re-couping, you need to go right back there and click on that link.

 

Flea Markets aside, the Halifax debut of the New Pornographers looks to make this quite an evening, and despite how curious I mind find the choice of My Brightest Diamond as an opener might be (I’m afraid I’ll spend her entire set hoping she’ll do this hook at least once), I’m sure plenty of folks are excited about it. What else is on tap for this evening? Well, in an exercise in trying to find an act that would be the polar opposite of a bar’s regular clientele, the legendary GWAR is playing The New Palace. If you prefer your entertainment a little less Fangoria-oriented, there looks to be a solid rock & roll show at The Seahorse being helmed by San Francisco’s Ty Segall.

 

If you’re looking for a Wednesday night dance party type vibe, then The Paragon is your spot for a full night of all-caps fun with THE MODERN MEN, STYROFOAM ONES, the Grand Wizard Ghettosocks (I know you’re seeing him Saturday night at the Herohill showcase, big deal, see him twice, it won’t kill you), and Isis from THUNDERHEIST. Jam packed evening right there, have fun.
