What's the deal with the music scene from the east coast?
Something is in the water there, as they've been exporting some incredible bands and Grande Prairie is fortunately part of a killer Alberta tour circuit.
THE MOTORLEAGUE is a punk-influenced hard rock band that gives up exactly what I'd expected based on my pre-show homework for their show at BETTER THAN FRED'S on April 26th. Off the hook energy right from the first riff, The Motorleague will pull you onto your feet with your fist in the air.
Although originally formed in Moncton, New Brunswick, The Motorleague makes several references throughout their show to a fondness for Cape Breton, even including a signature crowd sing along.
The Motorleague punches you in the face with their angst & frustration-filled lyrics and does it all with a smile. If you do nothing else, be sure to take a listen to their cuts "Litany For The Completely Forgettable", "We Are All Going Directly To Hell" and "We are Chemical". In fact, do yourself a favor and just download the entire album. There's not a bad track on it.
