Trailer Park Boys "Supergroup" concert pics and video

Wed, Oct 4, 2006@4:32PM | comments

Last night was the world premier showing of the Trailer Park Boys movie in Toronto. After the movie there was a mysterious "Supergroup" concert which I mentioned yesterday. There weren't many details available about the show, but RushIsABand reader Pat W. was lucky enough to attend the world premier and the concert following. He took plenty of pics (see above) and a short-but-sweet video which you can watch here. He also reported the following details:

Movie is beter than expected, Alex plays a cop who pulls the boys over. Also playing a cop is Gord Downie, singer for the Tragically Hip. There are some Rush t-shirts seen in the movie.

Concert was really good: no Geddy but lots of Alex on stage playing with Bubbles and then with the Big Dirty Band. Also there were some old Canadian bands like Helix and someone said Kim Mitchell (but I didn't see him). The finale song was I Fought The Law, and both Thornly's singer and Care Failure were there, along with Jeff Burrows on drums, plus the actual Trailer Park Boys. Care F has a tremedous voice! Jeremy Taggert played some drums too (he is from Our Lady Peace and played on Geddy's solo album.) Thornly opened the show at about 11 pm and it ended at 1 am.

Many, many thanks to Pat W. for his report, the video and all these great pics.
