OverKill Launch Party

Last weekend was the private launch party for Ottawas newest hot spot for drinks and debauchery, Overkill (aka OK). Conceptualized byGuy Berube, owner of La Petite Mort gallery, Overkill looks to set itself apart from the usual Irish Pubflavoredwatering holes that dominate the capital. The best description I can think of was written over 40 years ago by one of my favorite bands; I give you, Dr. Hook:

Well there’s gonna be a freakers ball
Tonight at the freakers hall
And you know, you’re invited one and all

Come on babies grease your lips
Grab your hats and swing your hips
Don’t forget to bring your whips
We’re going to the freakers ball

Blow your whistle and bang your gong
Roll up something to take along
It feels so good it must be wrong
We’re freakin at the freakers ball…

– Dr. Hook (1972)
