‘Take my bones away’

One of the best ways I find to inspire new artwork or to move through an artistic block is go to a really good music gig. I was fortunate enough to get heaps of inspiration the other night while watching Baroness and Royal Thunder rip up the stage at The Venue in Vancouver. Baroness was superb and showed us how well they can play and entertain at the same time. They were all in top form playing a great set that spanned their three albums. On a side note, I am always blown away by John Baizley’s artwork that he does for the band. Not only is he the lead singer but he does incredible Alphonse Mucha inspired art for the band’s covers and posters. The surprise of the night came from Royal Thunder, the band that went on before Baroness. They are an interesting mix of progressive hard rock with undertones of Black Sabbath, The Cult and the Stoner/ Psychedelic Rock sound. I was super impressed and picked up their latest effort, ‘CVI’, the next day. Make sure to check out the links below to get a taste of these two great bands.
