The first time I say these guys was in a small club called the Blues Underground in Prince George. Maybe 50 – 60 people. We sat off to the right side of the stage near a table of guys who were eating up a storm. Next thing we know, they get up and hit the stage. They food guys were Danko Jones. This show was one of the best I have ever seen. The energy coming from the stage electrified the small underground venue, yes the venue was in the basement of a building in downtown PG. I had heard their EP – My Love IsBold, a couple of time before and instantly fell in love with Bounce.
Now this is what I am talkin’ ’bout!
You did what he said, you watched him play guitar.
At the end of the show, Danko came out eating a banana. He stands in front of the mic, saying nothing but eating the banana. When he finished he pulled out a sharpie and signed the peel and threw it out onto the floor and said ” That will be worth a million dollars one day” and walked off the stage. This blew my mind. The f***** arrogance of the guy. That’s Danko Jones.
Here is the first of a trilogy of cool vids, with an all star cast.
He’s Canadian, ‘nough said, eh!
