Panic Button @ Gus Pub May 8th 2011 - 01Sunday night at Gus’ Pub proved to be a low key affair, starting off with local haligonians Panic Button, a two piece guitar and keyboard duo. The show started surprisingly on time at around 9:30, and there was actually a decent crowd for a Sunday night. Panic Button’s simple and fun songs seemed to please the crowd, who were steadfastly tabled but appreciative. In a move that the Mike Dorton’s of the world would greatly appreciate, they managed to turn the back of a DVD copy of Deep Blue Sea into a full blown brilliant tribute song.
Toronto Songwriter Sarah Greene was up next, as part of her east coast tour with fellow Toronto songsmith Ben Veener. After a working journey playing on the Via Rail train en route to their various shows, Sarah showcased her songwriting skills with the help of Halifax’s own Ruth Minnikin on accordion and vocals. Given my complete and utter lack of understanding or appreciation of the singer/songwriter genre, I can only base my summation of Sarah’s skills only the attentive crowd and pleasing vocal harmonies that these two ladies conjured up. The guitar work was simple but fitting and all together made for a relaxing and enjoyable Sunday evening.
