FAIRBANKS - Visas finally in hand, the Sick Puppies arrive in Fairbanks for a concert Saturday night, Jan. 23, at The Blue Loon. The band’s original concert date was postponed when the Australian band’s visa request was delayed. Yes, rock and roll is a dangerous thing.
The Sick Puppies — guitarist and vocalist Shimon Moore, bassist Emma Anzai and drummer Mark Goodwin — have rocked Fairbanks before, most recently about this time last year. But this isn’t the same band, musically speaking.
The sound is heavier, he explained, but on stage the band continues to go all out, turning venues into the “sweaty rock shows” the band prefers.
“We play balls to the wall and get off the stage,” he said.
