Bob called me. The plan was to stop by his place to work on his wireless/computer equiptment before I went off to lamours. I later found out the show was being pushed to start an hour earlier. Plans with Bob changed and Leo wasn't ready to leave the house. Leo wasn't expected to goto the show with me but he told me before I got into the shower that he might. When I called him back, he said "nah" He really missed a hell of a show too. I went to see Twilight Odyssey.
The first band that played was called "Grimoire" I showed up to meet Matt, Ben, Meesh, and Chris just as this band started. Chris pointed me out these two younger looking attractive girls. I've built a reputation with him for having a taste in young underage highschool girls. Well, It turns out they're friends of the band and they were having people sign their mailing list. Well, thank god I don't read my hotmail cause this band was shit. Well, it was just typical speed (nu?) metal. For one thing, the singer was holding a piece of paper at one point during the set. I can only imagine what he was reading.
The next two bands are a blur to me and I can't say I cared at all for them. The fourth band was called "Mudville Diaries". This blues like trio stood out from the mist of shit I've seen before them. Actually, I thought they sounded alot like "Black Cherry" At one point during their set, they had the guitarist from "Exit to Eternity" play second guitar. This was a perfect mix of metal with the simplistic sound of pure rock and roll. This was Mudville's last show because of their break up. I was later told by the frontman that he would still like to take up another band. I really hope he does cause this sound needs to be heard more. Its really great and genuine. Gotta give the kids something good to listen too.
The next band was "Exit to Eternity" Now, these guys don't suck! They totally stand out in the local scene because of their original yet grassroots sound. They don't sound like hatebreed, in flames or whatever the fuck, they sound like true metal! During this set, the frontman from Mudville came up and joined Exit on vocals to play "Rock'n in the Free World", an amazing Neil Young cover. They really did the song justice.
Now, for the band that everyone came to see, "Twilight Odyssey" This was my third time seeing them and it was once again an amazing show. Theres so much to say that I have to just mention that the last band "Zandelle" was just as amazing. Zandelle supposely has an album out but they weren't selling it in the back with the Twilight Odyssey shirts. I held out on the shirts in hopes that Zandelle had a CD for me to buy but noo....
Well, Thats about it. On one last note, the sound guy needs to die. He is supposely the same sound guy thats been working there for atleast 3 years. I always see him making out with his dirty hoes when he should be fixing up the audio. Some guitar melodies/solos couldn't be heard just because hes busy fucking off on the job. We all agree, hes a bad sound man.
