Pomeranian Fight Club pass the progressive emo torch to Alec Arms at Owl

E-mail Print PDF

It is fun watching new bands form, evolve then disband due to other interests or moving. Local progressive metal  trio Pomeranian Fight Club has been one of them. But guitarist  Eric Trotter is keeping the emo/ progressive rock burning in a new band Alec Arms, who opened for the Mahones, Oct. 27.


 They played their own show at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Saturday, Nov. 12.

They had that sound down, with plenty of loud guitars and experimental noises and strongly emo influenced vocals.


 They showed their usual stellar musicianship.


The show turned into a farewell show for Pomeranian Fight Club after Alec Arms’ set, with Lincoln Shriner on drums and singing a few songs and Chris Dyer on guitar and vocals and Erik Trotter playing bass for most of the set .


 They are always impressive to watching with constant instrument swicheroos and Chris Dyer singing over two-handed tapping.

 They ended with a song about Lethbridge to rousing cheers.
