Artist: The Sadies
Songs: God Bless The Infidels + The Snake (feat. Mary Margaret O'Hara) [Johnny Rivers cover] + Picture My Face [Teenage Head cover]
Recorded at The Garrison, January 7, 2017.
Playing at a guestlist-only birthday party at The Garrison, the Sadies were in Saturday night mode. That meant there was less than you might expect from their forthcoming new album, though the new "God Bless The Infidels" was a tasty Burrito Bros.-flavoured concoction. Otherwise there was a cavalcade of old favourites, turning to covers as the night would down. Mary Margaret O'Hara looked delighted to be channelling the writhing reptile in Johnny Rivers' "The Snake", while the encore-closing run through Teenage Head's first single was total fan service to the birthday-celebrating crowd, many of whom looked like they'd been there the song's first time around.
