The first band to start out was They've Shot Flanigan. Their sound was just rocking from the first notes they started playing. I thought they sounded like a cross between Thrice and early Radiohead. The music was so tight, and energetic that I thought the rest of the bands had a hard act to follow. Plus being the first band is a little bit of pressure. You're setting the stage for the night. You're wanting to set the tone that music is alive and well here in Indy. This is what They've Shot Flanigan brings. They will continue to rock out and bring the sound to the masses.
Also, I thought the Fallow were great. They had an alt rock sound that most bands don't bring. Their set was tight as well musically. Such talented musicians and in this venue they were just having fun. That's a HUGE thing to show off. Music is about fun, and being expressive this is what the Fallow did. Plus they had a sweet three song pirate piece that has inspired me to do my own three piece concepts. I don't know if they will all piece together or if I'll just venture into different ideas. But I will thank the Fallow for the idea.
Overall, it was such a great night, and a cool idea. More bands need to come together and support one another. That's what the music scene in Indy needs, and I hope that with my music I will do that.
