Pick of the Day: The Creepshow

Things have quieted down a bit lately. But for the past few years, Regina has had a pretty happening rock-a-billy/
psychobilly scene courtesy of bands like the Sinsters, Bastard Sons of a Rock 'N' Roll Devil and Let There Be Theremin. The Creepshow are out of Toronto. But when they take the stage they always bring the heat.

Fronted by Sean "Sickboy" McNab and Sarah "Sin" Blackwood, the Creepshow have two albums to their credit -- Sell Your Soul (2006) and Run For Your Life (2008). Horror films are a big inspiration when it comes to song-writing, and the band is notorious for their incendiary live shows. For a taste of what the band has to offer, here's the video for "Take My Hand" off their second album. (YouTube)

Joining the Creepshow at the Distrikt tonight are the Celtic folk-punk band the Dreadnoughts (here's the video for their song "Antarctica" off their 2009 album Legends Never Die) and garage punk rockers the Hypnophonics.
