Never mind the chill outside on the downtown streets of Edmonton, because the Starlite Room was heating up while being served a healthy dose of hard rock medicine, as rock'n'roll trio Danko Jones laid waste to a full room of eager fans.
Though Jones visited Edmonton just seven short months ago, the room filled up impressively with eager concertgoers anticipating a hell of a show. At last, Jones and co. tore into their set with bared claws and gritted teeth, amping up the room with heart-pounding kicks and bass lines that filled many folks in the room with the visible and insatiable urge to dance and sing. Playing just over an hour's worth of hard-hitting tunes, Jones and his two mates rocked the night away extra hard for Edmonton. "I salute you crazy fuckers," Danko exclaimed. "You're out here on a Wednesday night in minus 20 degree weather; now that's rock'n'roll."
