LiveInLimbo: Art Bergmann at Sneaky Dee's

February 24, 2015 - 10:21am

After a short intermission, Art Bergmann took to the stage. A key figure in Canadian punk rock, the 62-year-old Calgary native has likely seen livelier days. That said, he still puts on a strong-sounding show (albeit a far too long show, given the circumstances.) He’s very much all snarled, near-spoken word lyrics while his band backs him up with aggressive, bordering-jazz instrumentals. Bergmann teeters around on stage, but he knows what he’s doing. Though crowd reception was slightly tepid, his stream of consciousness lyricism was transfixing and bewildering, even referencing Beyonce, Jay Z, and Kanye West.
