Plenty of people rag on London Ontario, and until recently I was one of them. Fair enough, the city has adopted WAY too many landmarks from its English namesake. But, once you ditch the lame Western bar strip on Richmond Street, London has a remarkably fun downtown core. The Rotary Club has set up a mellow reading park, there’s free Wi-Fi down there, and the bartenders are friendly. But more importantly, for a city that size, they have a pretty decent music scene, even though the local newspapers do an abysmal job at accurately listing concerts on a given night.
All of which to say, I found myself in London last week, and I caught a phenomenal show at The A.P.K. I had never been before, but I was throughly impressed. The crowd was friendly, there were a ton of good beers on tap, and most importantly, all of the four bands I caught kicked some serious ass … for a $6 cover.
