8/18/07 - Airline, Latture, Calhoun, Chemistry Set

method entertainment all-day event - got there at 7:30

salute - G southern rock (not my thang, tho), 3-man, greasy-long-haired ball cap bassist
greater good - VG, 6-man, where have these guys been?
chemistry set - awesome
calhoun - also awesome, david herman look-a-like lead (flickerstick guitarist)
latture - incredible, piano-led indie pop, awesome back-up vox, great violin; from little rock
jonathan tyler & the northern lights - G, but southern rock again
airline - VG, not quite as good as others

best show in a long time. 5 incredible bands in one night. hope method does it again soon.

8/17/07 - Tha Bracelets, Man Factory, etc.

Red Pony Clock - 10-man band, horns aplenty, oboe (!), couldn't hear vocals well. OK happy psych-pop
ZipZipZapZap - OK punk pop
The Man Factory - OK
Tha Bracelets - eh

this was a perfect example of a show I didn't like mainly because the type of music being played just wasn't my thing. all of the bands were pretty good, from what i remember (although the number of tequila shots i had definitely impaired my cognitive abilities - thanks, tony).
