Oh what a night

NL is known as The Rock for good reason — the music of course. 
St. John’s was on musical fire Tuesday night, the eve of the Royal St. John’s Regatta, with two concerts — one on George Street, the heart of the bar district, and the other on the shores of Quidi Vidi Lake.
The '90s rock band Thomas Trio and the Red Albino (see above) revved George Street to a fever pith (they were simply awesome), while Shanneyganook (see below), one of the best traditional NL bands around today, headlined Up the Pond

Jodi Richardson, lead singer of Thomas Trio and the Red Albino, isn't just a singer — he's a true performer. 

Andrew James O'Brien ("the next great songwriter to emerge from Newfoundland") also performed Up the Pond — an amazing NL talent. 

Joel Plaskett and the Emergency were also on the shores of Quidi Vidi Tuesday night — what a pleasure.
