Tantrum Art to host dance party at George’s Roadhouse

Free taxis and food to celebrate local meat at Sackville SaveEasy.

Those who have ventured into or past the meat aisle of the Sackville SaveEasy may have noticed certain stickers adorning a few of the packages. These stickers, which say “HomeGrown Meats of Tantramar,” indicate that the meat comes from local livestock farmers. Pickles European Deli is sponsoring a dance party at George’s Roadhouse on Nov. 30 to celebrate the arrangement.

HomeGrown Meats of Tantramar is a local brand that represents the livestock farmers of the Tantramar area. The event will be celebrating its retail debut at Sackville SaveEasy and the Shediac and Dieppe Co-ops.

In a reprisal of the lineup for this year’s Sackville Fall Fair Battle of the Bands, Tantrum Art, Max Grizzly & the Entertainment, and Rocket Culture will be performing. The lineup was well received at the Fall Fair. Tantrum Art is a Sackville-based blues rock band comprised of Mount Allison professors Steve Law, on bass, Frank Strain, on guitar, Tim Reiffenstein, on keyboards, and David Hunter and Tom Hearn of Pickles on drums and vocals, respectively. The band is scheduled to play from 10:15 pm until 11:30 pm.

Max Grizzly & the Entertainment, who formed as a Mt. A house party band, will be opening the show at 9 pm. The band features Luke Trainor, of now-defunct local mainstay Bolivia, and the notably deep-voiced Peter Halpine. The band’s set at the Fall Fair was commendably energetic, with band members making their way into the crowd to lead an almost choreographed dance routine. They have a track on the 2012 edition of Conduct Becoming.

Moncton’s Rocket Culture will be taking the stage after Tantrum Art. The band is a funk rock collective and was equally well received at this year’s Fall Fair.

Pickles European Deli, which David Hunter of Tantrum Art owns, is sponsoring the event. Their sponsorship includes free appetizers and free taxis via Sackville Cab to George’s Roadhouse. The free cab service will be for parties of four or more, and will be available both to and from the concert. The event is pay-what-you-can, with all profits going toward the Sackville Food Bank.
