There's always something going on at Bookie's Nu Music Nite at The Horseshoe, and so anytime there's a band billed as Secret Special Guest, it's probably worth getting there in time for that set. In this case it was illScarlett back on stage at The Horseshoe, apparently after having been previously banned from the venue for, uh... "smoking" on stage. I had already planned on being there for Trophy, so when the news spread on Facebook and MySpace that illScarlett was going to be performing as well, I made sure to get there a little earlier.

Trophy

This band shares a couple of members with a few other bands, and everyone I know who has seen them says it's a show worth seeing. Trophy plays around Toronto every now and then, but this was the first time my schedule matched up with theirs. Finally. Derek Downham is always a killer on the drum kit, and Kirt Godwin always puts on a good show as the front man. I hadn't heard any of the music before, but from what I know about the band members, their style of rock was about what I expected. On first listen, there were about two songs that stood out for me, but I don't have the memory to be able to tell you what they were. I guess I'll just have to get out and see them again sometime.

If you've been to this site before, you may have previously come across a few photos of illScarlett. Having seen them at a couple of other larger venues (with great lighting), the show at The Horseshoe felt amazingly intimate. They always put on a great show, but rather than many, many hundreds of people, the crowd was relatively small and filled with all the regulars... their friends and long time fans. The band was out West on tour for a while, so maybe their friends were using The Horseshoe as a bit of a welcome back party. On the other hand, it's sort of always like that with illScarlett...
