We Are Scientists - I recall seeing this California trio, but it was long ago (over 4 years) so I thought they were good, but I did not remember their sound. Well, the sound came back well enough as they played, but once they went into their stage banter, it was the lightbulb above the head moment. Oh, these guys! Their witty and nerdy humor truly befits their band name and is a pleasure all its own. But their music made an even stronger impression on me this time around as I saw a furthering of quality power pop music into songs that had wild guitar patterns that you would not normally associate with fun positive power pop songs. There is a little Green Day here, but with Adolescents soloing carrying the verses. Wild stuff that they make seem way too easy. Unfortunately I was way under the weather tonight as I've exposed myself to a week's worth of Black Cat germs, so I had to give my throat a rest and cut out a little early. But not before I saw enough tonight of these two bands to check out more of their recorded works.
