It was another night at Barrymore’s for another rockstar only this time the rockstar had a slightly larger profile in his past than many of the previous guests. The headliner this night was none other than former Skid Row front man, turned Gilmore Girls actor, Sebastian Bach
Kicking off the night was an extremely talented band from the other side of the Ottawa River in Aylmer, Inire. Fresh off the release of their latest album Cauchemar these guys got the energy building in the packed room and got the crowd pumped for the show to come.
Picking up the beat from Inire was Ottawa’s own, and might I add one of the greatest rock bands to come out of Ottawa…perhaps I’m a bit biased because I’m in the band myself :-), Iconoclast. These Ottawa rockers wasted no time getting into the rock and kept the energy level high leading into the headline act himself.
By the time Bach took to the stage around 10:30 Barrymore’s was packed wall to wall, I don’t remember a time that that venue was so full for a show. And Bach wouldn’t disappoint either. For the better part of 2 hours Bach cranked out hit after hit of Skid Row classics from “18 and Life” to “Slave to the Grind” and everything in between leading up to his recent solo work.
It’s been a great fall to be a rock fan in Ottawa and we look forward to that trend continuing into 2017 in the meantime do yourself a favour and support some local rock bands, be sure to pick up Inire’s Cauchemar you won’t be disappointed!
