It is always a good time when Calgary indie rock/ country band Cowpuncher come to town.
They tore apart the Slice, Jan. 18 with humour and a lot more country than they have been playing recently.The man of many hats, Matt Olah was at his best on lead vocals and rhythm guitar and I always love watching stand up bassist Harley Hoeft slap the hell out of his bass as he hammers out the groove.
Their second set wasn’t as frenetic as their last Lethbridge visit. It included most of their latest CD ‘Ghost Notes’ and 2012 country tinged single ‘Hooscow.’
As always ‘Acetaminophen’ stood out as did ‘Back of Vans’ and the first track off of Ghost Notes, ‘Raised on Rock and Roll.’
Olah is always entertaining, he wore a variety of hats including his sailor’s cap and a studded leather mask that looked like a cross between an executioners helmet helmet and something you’d probably find in the locked bedroom of a high priced gigolo.
They also added an energetic cover of the Rolling Stones’ ‘Gimmie Shelter.’
