Revelstoke’s first home-grown rock opera, Of Harlots and Harlequin, opened to an enthusiastic crowd of about 130 people at the Performing Arts Centre on Saturday evening, November 9.
Havok Way’s performance was — if you disregard a minor technical glitch at the start of the show — was almost flawless with excellent performances by lead guitarist Strathon Bajowsky and bass guitarist Katrina Thompson and excellent work on the drums by James Kincaid.
The 13-song performance told the story of a young man who falls in love but finds himself being subtly corrupted by a supernatural being.
Local metal band Bad Karma opened for Havok Way and was also well received by the audience.
Regrettably, my photos of Bad Karma were not of a quality suitable for publication. Here are a few photos from Of Harlots and Harlequin:
