Friday July 8th marked not only the final pre-songwriting-hiatus show for Toronto rock quartet Black Devils Brigade, but The iM’s first ever live music night at Toronto’s historical venue The El Mocambo – where such greats as The Rolling Stones, The Police, U2, & Queens Of The Stone Age have headlined.

And what a night it was.

Toronto female-fronted pop-rock outfit Petty Victories opened up the night; down two band members, but still managing to fill the house with their catchy anthems. Different Skeletons opened up the dance floor with a heavier set of punk-influenced riffing and got all the ladies dancing (and guys too… I saw you, don’t deny it). Hamilton’s The Dirty Nil then opened up a can of whup-ass and destroyed the ears of everyone in the venue; just in time for Black Devils Brigade to finish the job at the end of the night by melting everyone’s faces off (not literally, that would be gross…. and a health code violation), culminating in their traditional Pixies-hommage as the band members re-introduced themselves and sauntered off stage one-by-one.

Check out the awesome time you missed, or that I (Ryan) can’t really remember, in the pictures below.
