STRAWMAN had the privilege of sharing the stage with industrial pop rockers  The Rabid Whole at the Hard Luck bar in Toronto last week. Their live show was very slick and the music was a polished mix of Linkin Park and Nine Inch Nails.  Andreas, George, JJ, Oscar and Chalsey have just released their latest album ‘Refuge’, as Andreas puts it “showcases a 21st century, high-energy, electro alternative, orgasmic-punch-in-the-face-rock band.”  The Rabid Whole will be travelling to Quebec at the end of May to promote ‘Refuge’.

The Hard Luck gig marked the launch of Indie Week’s ‘Throwdown Thursdays’.  We were asked to play by Indie Week director, Darryl Hurs,  and were glad to be a part of it.  The Southern Comfort promo at the bar helped ‘sweeten’ the deal.

The Hard Luck Bar has now relocated to 772 Dundas St. W. in Toronto and is a good sized room with a great stage.  It’s going to be a key venue in the Toronto indie music scene, especially with the large void to fill after the closing of the landmark multivenue building at the corner of Queen and Bathurst that housed ‘The Reverb’, ‘Kathedral’, and ‘Holy Joe’s’.
