Frankie McQueen at Indie Week 2013

FrankieMcQueenDuring Wednesday night’s Indie Week launch party, Frankie McQueen managed to do the unthinkable: they were able to get the crowd to fill the void by the stage with dancing bodies.

The Calgary-based trio’s blend of high-energy rock and roll invigorated the crowd at the Hideout, exciting the audience into a frenzy.

And why wouldn’t they? Corey Adams’ fast, heavy bass lines, Connor Muth’s clacking, punching drums, and Scott Charles’ deep, screaming guitar and smooth, strong vocals made for a performance that was, above all else, fun to watch.

The band plays straight-up rock music, but a variety of other elements tend to peek through their live set. ‘Firewoman’, for example, features deep blues influences, while other songs find glam or funk roots.

One particularly interesting point to mention is Frankie McQueen’s onstage chemistry and participation. They talk to the audience; they entice the audience; they make sure the audience is having fun. They crack jokes – they even have a song called ‘No It’s A Cardigan But Thanks For Noticing’, an homage to the line in Dumb and Dumber.

All in all, Frankie McQueen is one band whose live show you don’t want to miss out on. And you’re in luck – catch them at the Hideout tonight, and at Cherry Cola’s tomorrow.
