Ronley Teper & The Lipliners - Both Sides Now

Full review to follow. The Lipliners are the sort of band that is bigger at the end of the night than they were at the start — the sort of band that musicians come to have fun in when they're done with their other gigs. Having an open-ended and flexible lineup works perfectly with Ronley Teper's songs, with the band often learning them as they go. This particular one was so fresh out of the oven that Teper had to duck back into the kitchen to grab a lyric sheet she'd baked up. The ramshackle, impromptu arrangements are the ideal vehicle for lyrical sentiments that might be too outrageous or tender in a more refined setting. The perfect sort of band to see at The Tranzac, and when Teper's not tending bar, you can find her on stage on the first Wednesday of every month. (And also, rumour has it, at January's edition of the Long Winter series, as well!)

* Thanks to Ronley for passing along the title to this one.
