3/17/10 - Explodes into Colors, Cave Singers, Quasi, Duchess and the Duke, Ruby Suns, Moondoggies, Generationals, Seryn, Monastery

Spune's 2k10 Rite of Spring Fling at Hailey's...
Many thanks to Mr. Spune, who set a shining example for other venues to follow by actually starting on time and keeping to the (previously published!) schedule, down to the gnat's ass. Bravo!

(mostly) copied from my facebook page:

0. Monastery (Denton) - one dude wif keytar, plus lots of electronics. Only heard half of one song, so i don't rightly know...
1. Seryn (Denton). Awesome 4-part harmony folk/folk rock. Beautiful.
2. Generationals (New Orleans). Wimpy, girly twee pop. Horrible vox. Blech.
3a. Vodker cranberry. Highly recommended.
3b. Moondoggies (Seattle). Bluesy piano, southern-twinged rock. Little heavy on the Rhodes, but decent.
4. Ruby Suns (New Zealand). Synthy pop, not bad, kept thinking "island pop", dono why, maybe the V-C is to blame
5. Duchess and the Duke. Unplugged. Booooooring
6?? Where am i?? Quasi (Portland). Many thanks to the lead guitar/singer, who spared me the indignity of capturing the Oldest Guy In The Room title. Too bad he sux. Oh my effing gawd. 3 Who covers in a row??? Done.
8. Cave Singers (Seattle). Gritty. Poetic. Dylanesque, yet rockin'. Awesome.
9. Explode into Colors (Portland). MORE COWBELL!! Kidding, tho that *was* featured prominently. 3 gals - two drummers and one bass guitar. Bizarre, yet oddly compelling.
10. Effing headliners cancelled.
