Danko Jones didn't play nice (photos, video)

I don't think Danko Jones made any new fans Friday night at the Canadian Night Club. In fact, he may have even lost one or two. About 150 people came out to see the notorious Canadian rocker and the band he named after himself.

About 150 people came out to see the notorious Canadian rocker and the band he named after himself.

Jones made it perfectly clear the size of the audience displeased him.

And what started as sarcasm and comments made in jest, soon declined into outright insulting remarks.

One girl in particular suffered the brunt of Jones' childish jabs simply because she asked to hear a song he refused to play.

These unfortunate events grossly overshadowed the music, although it felt as though he phoned in a good portion of his performance and couldn't wait to get the set over with.

Jones' set list included Code of the Road, Still in High School and Never Too Loud from his 2008 release Never Too Loud as well as older favourites, such as Play the Blues, Bounce and Lovercall.

No one asked for an encore.

Montreal-based Hot Springs is currently on tour with Danko Jones and dished out a big juicy set of its fresh blend of rock, pop and punk with a twist of psychedelia.

Singer/guitar player Giselle Webber took home the trophy for sexiest band member of the evening, not only for her appearance and stage presence, but her unique and breathy vocal style.

Sault Ste. Marie's Big Suit started the evening off with its first performance in two years, having just newly reunited.

The band apparently plans on recording a new album of original rock material later this year.
