Zeus were the headliners at Lee's Palace on Saturday, September 27. I posted about The Golden Dogs' unique energy and Taylor Knox' amazing power pop and now it's time for Zeus; gods of the night, if you will.

Like The Golden Dogs, Zeus have a sound that's super hard to pin down and classify. I guess you have to say that it's original and unique. Both very good things in an age when you have to fight to differentiate yourself in a crowded music marketplace. Their tunes feature sweet leads and harmonies and lots of elements of the 70s. Classic rock; hence, Classic Zeus, the title of their latest album.

I heard Zeppelin riffs and Queen harmonies in the tunes that Zeus unleashed on the sold-out home town crowd. The opening riff of "Are You Gonna Waste My Time" got a big reaction from the crowd, including myself. It's a great great song that featured on my Top 10 Canadian Songs of 2012 and number 38 on my overall Best Songs of 2012 list. They even treated us to a never-before-played-live tune called "Everybody's Got One"

And, at last, some great Zeus tunes:

"Miss My Friends"

"Are You Gonna Waste My Time?"

"Love In A Game"

"How Does It Feel"

"Marching Through Your Head"

"I Know You Want To Be A Part of This"

"You Could Have A Lover"

"Hot Under the Collar"
