After being fuelled up with slow-cooked pulled pork, it was over to East Village for the Block Party on the Riverwalk Plaza to see some electronic dance with a few thousand others and a great selection of food trucks and Market Collective stalls. Pretty cool scene but nothing compared to The Shivas.
Highlight of the Night: The Shivas played a great set of surf-rock, west-coast sound. A perfect match for the Golden Age Club, a working seniors home that Sled Island re-purposes for evenings of rock and roll. Complete with a Bingo scoreboard and a floor painted with shuffle-board courts(?), the old-timey venue ties well with the surf-rock sound. Fantastic surprise for a group I wasn't familiar with. Check them out next time you seen them on a bill somewhere:
