Triple Gangers - Roadrash

You can't fault Long Winter for being ambitious and for wanting to close out the season by cramming in as much music and art into the Great Hall as possible, but their plan to close the year out with a two-night stand didn't entirely pay off. Giving patrons the choice of two nights (and holding them at the end of Spring Break) seemed to especially cut into the younger crowd and both nights (especially Friday) lacked that "about to burst" feeling that makes LW unique. But even if the crowd was at less than maximum strength, there was no certainly no lack of music spread throughout the building.

After singing some emotionally-stormy songs with the Queer Songbook Orchestra's lush orchestrations earlier in the night, Ghislain Aucoin helped close out the action on the basement stage with an extended set from one of his other projects. Alongside Aurora Cowie and Ida Maidstone, the trio opened their set with the theme song to Sailor Moon — a sign that this was going to be lighthearted, campy fun. Over an extended dance party of a set they dug through their catalogue, including this one which appeared on the last of the season's free split 7" singles.
