Edgewood - Unfortunately the opening band took much of the crowd of 20 plus with them leaving an audience of five for this local rock band. Much their loss as the band performed a gutsy intelligent set. They line up with drums, bass, guitar and a vocalist. The vocals sounded as if Jeff Pezzati of Naked Raygun were trying to sing like Matt Bellamy of Muse. That is a compliment. The rhythm section is rock solid and both the drummer and bassist have moments where I focus on their respective qualities. But as in most bands, the guitar is the key and this guy banged out some interesting post punk power chords. It reminded me of the 80s where catchy melodies were trying to exist with punk power. Good edgy songs here and I have another band on my list that I hope to watch again and see how they grow.
Quote of the Night: Paraphrased from Wise Old Lions guitarist... The song is dedicated to a friend who works at the Black Cat. He lost a tooth when he was working the door and someone punched him and ran off... Hmmm, that sounds familiar and he went on to mention the obvious connections and about being careful what you read. Good advice.
