A bloodbath at The Boot with the Crowley Band

Who: The Crowley Band

Where: Boot Pub

When: Monday, May 5

Help the Crowley Band boys celebrate the potential kick-off of their Canadian tour at the end of the month.

That’s all depending on lead singer Brad Makepeace’s head wound of course.

You see, after a rather spirited performance at Garf’s last month, Brad decided to smash his guitar over his head, producing a blood bath and gaping gash that the audience thought was fake.

"There was blood everywhere, it was awesome," said heavy metal mouth Dave Crowley. "He’s got a screw loose that kid but man, it looked cool. It gave us a whole new creative perspective which saw us write several new songs in the last few weeks."

The new odes to Brad’s ordeal will be unveiled at the Boot gig. And expect some great new cover tunes from Irish heavy metal rockers Thin Lizzy too. Doors at 9 p.m.

Japanese drums and dancing come to Squamish

What: Uzume Taiko Ensemble

Where: Eagle Eye Theatre, Squamish.

When: Friday, May 9

Here’s a great event to take your mom to for Mother’s Day. A little loud perhaps, but action and adventure all the way.

The Uzume Taiko Ensemble is a diverse collection of percussive and melodic instruments, fusing old and new styles of drumming to bring a vibrant, contemporary sensibility to an ancient art.

With the choreographed physicality of martial arts, the heart-stopping pulse of the huge O-Daiko drum and the rhythmic sensitivity of a jazz ensemble, the drummers of Uzume Taiko create an exhilarating, sensual experience for the audience.

Uzume Taiko derives its name from the Japanese word for ‘big drum’ and from the goddess of laughter, Ame No Uzume No Mikoto – the Heavenly Alarming Female. According to legend, Uzume was the first drummer and dancer in Japanese mythology. Taiko has held a centuries-old place in Japanese culture, and it is from the power and athleticism of traditional drumming techniques that Uzume Taiko draws its inspiration.

Tickets are $20 and $15. Call 604-898-9404 for more information.
