Exactly my point. No matter how good a band might be at what they do, it doesn't mean that it'll work at every venue.

Oh cripes, I played there once. Awful. People screaming "show us your tits" at our singer. I ended up taking my shirt off, writing "We don't like you" on my chest in marker and freaky dancing like Bez from the Happy Mondays during the last song.

At one point the people who went to Kendzie's were just the people who had got kicked out of the Niagara Hotel. Which is saying something.

In the Fall was the only time I've ever been to the Niagara for a Celtic Fest pub crawl. We arrived around 3pm. Already about a dozen shit faced people and the 20 that we had. So I hear a drummer warming up...I go in the back and it's a Scorpions cover band...Love at First Sting I believe. I ask him when they go on....he says was 3pm and he was doing a sound check.
