okay, so i went to a show tonight for the first time in about a year, and surprisingly it wasn't a complete waste of my time. here's a quick recap of the bands that played and what i thought of them personally.
Abby Normal: interesting, sort of blink-182ish but not really, i liked them enough to listen to all of their songs.
Broke: annoyingly loud, stupid looking pierced nose vocalist. insane bass player who almost smacked said vocalist in the back of the head with his bass.
Slender Means: by far the best of the four bands, a very interesting mix of styles, 2 guitarists, a bassist, a keyboardist, and a drummer. very good vocals by both guitarists, very harmonic.
Side Dish: Ska-core band, i can't give a fair review seeing as i left after the second song, which was a cover of "Don't Turn Away" (not sure what band did it originally)
all in all it was a fairly okay show, 2 out of the 4 bands impressed me, which is pretty damn good seeing as i'm so very critical of local bands. the annoying thing is that whenever the bands would tell us to buy their stuff they would say "merch" instead of just saying "merchandise" or "buy our shit" it was really stupid.
okay, other than the show i've just been working on my GED, i should have it in time to start school this upcomming semester. i've also been playing WoW like there's no tomorrow. anyhow, rock on and all that good stuff.
