Stripper's Union: Local 518, Buffalo Club, Vancouver, 21 Sep 2005Last Wednesday, September 21, I went to Vancouver's Buffalo Club to see my friend and band colleague Doug Elliott play bass with Stripper's Union: Local 518. It's been a long time since I went to see a band, rather than play in one, and it was a fun time.

The opener, Porn on the Cob, put on the rock too.

Incidentally, it's sort of a superstar lineup: Doug, Craig Northey, and Pat Steward used to be in the Odds and also play with Colin James. (Craig also co-wrote and performs the theme song to the hit Canadian TV show Corner Gas.) Keyboardist Simon Kendall was a key member of Doug and the Slugs, and also plays with Doug, Craig, and Pat in the instrumental combo Sharkskin. Drummer Vince Ditrich is a member of Spirit of the West. And guitarist Rob Baker is the long-haired guy from the Tragically Hip.

Fortunately, following union rules, the show included no nudity.
