Scrapes @ The Rivoli 10/16/2013
The thing about Indieweek is you never quite know what you’re in for. I remember past years I was surprised when the frontman of a Japanese band started singing in an operatic manner. Anyways, after the Hideout I headed to the Rivoli. Halifax’s Scrapes were playing some relatively safe alt-rock tunes. In the middle of their set Partycat rolled in with large cases of gear and knew it was going to get loud next.

Partycat @ The Rivoli 10/16/2013
Partycat was the first metal band I’ve seen play the Rivoli. Though the numbers of the audience dwindled (mostly because of shock) Joshua Couttrau still performed with great enthusiasm. He spun the mic around on the Rivoli floor, screamed into audience faces and hopped and pranced about on stage. Members even poured beers into each others mouths. Though their music isn’t my cup of tea, I thought they were quite amusing to watch. Check out the end of my vlog of the day for some of their antics.

Andria Simone @ The Rivoli 10/16/2013
So uh, following the metal band was sultry singer Andria Simone performing soulful tunes which got the audience dancing and her to invite them to aftershow love-making.
