That is a weird but cool lineup. You're spot on about Lips' stage presence/attitude. He's just the happiest guy ever, and that's why Anvil is so much fun, even if the music is simple and relatively unoriginal at this point.
7/19 - Megadeth
8/11 - Swashbuckle/Crimson Shadows
8/20 - Skid Row
9/5 - Spell/Manacle
