After filling stomachs with food, eco-bags with crafts and delights and eyes and ears with the sights and sounds of the powwow tonight, the party is far from over.
The Knights of Columbus is slam central as Inter Species Wrestling will take over the joint and present Cruel Summer, an elbow-throwing, body-tossing, top rope-flying barrage of wrestling featuring, naturally, the Dad Bod Squad.
“We will be facing a team called #thebest,” said Kyle Zachary, one of the two bods in question with Shawn Rice. “We only know that they’re two loud, entitled millennials with zero respect for anyone.”
Zachary admitted the dad bods have not trained as much as they should have, being that they’re adults with families, unlike the spoiled brat, entitled snowflakes they’ll be facing. The dad bods know the name of the game will be, ‘work smarter not harder.’
“They said that we were out of shape and should retire,” said Zachary. “It’s true, but you just don’t say something like that you know?”
Show stars at 7 p.m., and tickets are $12 for general admission, $8 for kids and $20 for VIP.
If you time it right and hustle, there is a chance you can also catch the greatest free concert to hit Kahnawake in a while.
The Attic Ramblers, a trio made up of Derek Miller, Corey Diabo and Lance Delisle, are playing at the Moose at 10 p.m. Doors open at 8.
The band’s formation is a classic right time, right place series of fortunate events, told as only Delisle can.
“A couple of years ago, Derek Miller was supposed to go to Hiio Kirby’s online radio station, but he made a mistake, showed up at K103. I ended up befriending him, said let’s put on a show, we put on a show, then, he liked the way I drum, asked me if I would drum for him, I said, ‘great,’” said Delisle. “That first show I played drums for him, I asked Corey if he would open up the show, so he ended up coming on stage.”
The friends started writing and recording together in, you guessed it, Delisle’s attic, thus the band’s moniker.
“We go from rootsy Americana to country-esque and rock with a defined thread through it all,” said Diabo. “We’re looking forward to doing a show for Kahnawake as well, as schedules never allowed. It’s going to be a great night for everyone.”
Fans can expect three originals, songs from Diabo and Miller’s cannon and a solid collection of covers.
“It’s going to be a rockus show,” said Delisle.
Delisle joked about being the Ringo of the group as it were, playing alongside two established and heralded Kanien’kehá:ka musicians.
“I’m so not supposed to be in this band at all, not even remotely close,” said Delisle with a laugh. “It’s a real honour to be with these guys because they’re the real deal, real professionals. They see value in mediocrity.”
