Heavy MTL 2008: Priestess
[previous] :: [next]
After a loooong hiatus, I am continuing to post pictures taken during the 2008 Heavy MTL festival.
Priestess is a local band from Montreal that has been quickly gaining popularity since their founding in 2003, especially overseas.
They took the stage at Heavy MTL on the afternoon of Sunday, June 22, 2008. Their set was short but energetic, and nowhere near as long as what a band of their caliber deserved.
I was reminded to post these pics when I started chatting with Charles, who was tending bar at my favourite dive last weekend, and when the conversation moved around to music, it soon came out that Charles' best friend since childhood was Mikey Heppner, lead singer of Priestess.
In fact, Charles called Mikey on his cell a few minutes later, and was mentioning me. I said, "Yeah, I think I recall him. Chubby guy, right?". Mikey told Charles to "Kick him in the balls for me!" (For some unknown reason, I had actually mixed up Mikey with Cam Pipes of 3 Inches of Blood)
My apologies, Mikey.
In another coincidence, Mikey's mother works at my kids' high school, and my kids are actually fans of Priestess.
Priestess definitely deserved more time at Heavy MTL, and apparently Mikey was somewhat disappointed to be put on for Sunday's show, as he was hoping to play the same day as his idols in Iron Maiden, who played on Saturday.
Well, 2009 will give Mikey a much better chance to get both more time on stage, and to play at the same show as some of his heroes, since Priestess is scheduled to open for AC/DC when their Black Ice Tour comes to Montreal's Olympic Stadium on August 8, 2009.

It would appear that Charles passed me the wrong info, or perhaps did so prematurely. It appears that Priestess and AC/DC have schedule conflicts that will not allow Priestess to open for them.

Dude, Can you believe they're not on the bill for the 2010 Heavy MTL? I've put together a Facebook fan page to try and get that changed. I would like to post your pics from 2008 on this page. So I'm asking for permission. You can either check it out and post them, or just give me the word and I can do.

Permission granted. Good luck. Let me know if you need larger copies of the originals, but I warn you, the resolution is not the greatest.
