Patrons at Kenzington Burger Bar were treated to a night of 80’s hair band music when the singer from Red Dragon Cartel, Darren James Smith (formerly of Harem Scarem), stopped by to play several sets of high intensity, heavy metal goodness. The venue is small, but was packed with enthusiastic metal heads all eager to see this rock legend in a rare and intimate setting. Smith demonstrated his musical dexterity by performing on both electric guitar and drums during the performance. His charm and cheeky nature instantly won over the crowd as he engaged them in conversation in between songs, and he also made time for several silly faces for my camera. To be in the presence of such a rock legend was a truly humbling experience. Follow him on the social media accounts for Red Dragon Cartel to keep informed about his future performances.

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
