Heavy Trash

For their debut performance, Heavy Trash's front-men, Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, enlisted the talents of the Sadies to back them up. Still sweaty from their own excellent opening performance, the members of the Sadies proved to be the perfect supporting musicians for Heavy Trash's brand of rockabilly and old school rock'n'roll. While Jon Spencer's distinctive Blues Explosion yelp still figures prominently in the band's sound, Heavy Trash allows Spencer to show off more of his singing talents. Performing both heartbroken ballads and boisterous rockers, Verta-Ray and Spencer had the Toronto crowd howling for more throughout the entire night.
