The first of three weekends of music for CFCR's FM-Phasis Fest is in the books, with a pair of really dandy shows at Amigos.

As you may have heard, this year we're really focusing on local bands, and we got some really great lineups for the shows. On Friday, we kicked the funding drive off in all kinds of style with The Seahags, Brucey Ramone (a one-man Ramones cover band), Ride Til Dawn and The Shakey Elevators (Shakey Wilson). We had a really good turn-out and everyone had a great time! Check out some pics from the night:

Saturday featured three more local bands in the form of Little Criminals, Fisticuffs and Gunner & Smith. There were very many excellent vocal harmonies to be had this night! Despite there being a tonne of shows going on around Broadway, the turnout for the show was really solid and the bands brought a great amount of energy to the stage. Check out the photographic evidence:

Thanks to everyone who made it out to one or both of our shows on weekend #1 of FM-Phasis Fest 2012. We've got another couple doozies planned next weekend, with Shooting Guns and Foggy Notions on Friday, and a bonafied dance party extravaganza on Saturday with a live set from Quadrant Khan, as well as sets by Dyslexic, Form and Economics. Both these shows are at Amigos, and both cost only FIVE BUCKS EACH! See you there!
