She Stole My Beer – LIVE
The Beers started in the early 90’s as a 7-piece hippie jam band influenced by the Grateful Dead, Little Feat, Bob Marley, John Prine, Neil Young and the Allman Brothers Band.
Their first album Sparks Off the Guardrail remains a stone-cold classic, one of the best recorded in BC back when Vancouver was fuelled by legendary producers Bruce Fairbairn, Bob Rock, Little Mountain Sound, and world class strip clubs that together drew bands to produce more 90’s platinum rock albums than NYC.
You can’t put a finger on the band. You can’t describe their format or their flavour. They have never had a commercial hit or even close to one. Most people know their name as a goofy semi-humorous anomaly. But on their first comeback show last Nov 12 at the Garibaldi Lift Company in Whistler, they absolutely burned the placed down. Two smokin’ 60-minute sets plus a half hour encore cookin’! You had no idea where they were going in the set next, causing a riot of joy amongst the Whistler and Vancouver locals who roared their approval.
On March 18th in the new Wicket Hall in the Strathcona hotel, She Stole My Beer will put on one of the best live shows of the year in Victoria. They will play songs that many have rarely heard, building those songs into sledgehammers of rhythm that make the dancers quake and the room shake. Killer musicians in their prime, songwriters 30 years into their craft, brothers in arms forever now playing clean and hard.
