June 27, 2009, The Distillery – Calgary, AB
With four amazing days of Sled Island performances behind us, everyone wanted to see the festival end with a bang. The Bronx came all the way from Los Angeles to deliver the explosives. When they arrived, vocalist Matt Caughthran remembered us immediately from his last visit, even with The Distillary having since relocated.

By the time Edmonton’s Whitey Huston and Calgary’s Knucklehead were done their sets, it was full to its 500-plus capacity, for the first time at the new location.

The Bronx was incredible, playing a great selection of favourites to a surging mosh pit of Lucky Lager-fueled fans. Highlights included kick-ass renditions of “Young Bloods”, “Shitty Future”, “Knifeman”, and a sweet crowd sing-a-long to “Dirty Leaves”. Matt and the rest of the Bronx, (Joby J. Ford, Jorma Vik, Ken Horne and Brad Magers) fearlessly interacted with crowd, encouraging the stage divers and crowd surfers. Matt even jumped right in – at one point executing a perfect front flip into the arms of the aficionados up front. “This one’s for you, Philly,” Matt said before lighting the fuse on “History’s Stranglers”, and the whole place went nuts.

When the show ended, they opted out of returning to their hotel, to instead party with the staff, right up until flight time at 7 a.m. the next morning. They are all great guys, and shared their amazing and funny stories of life on endless tour. Matt left Philly with a memento he is most proud of, a voicemail on his cell phone, screaming the way only Matt can: “YOU MOTHERFUCKER, I WANT YOUR BLOOD!”.
