Hey kids, I went to a rock n roll show

My one headlight and I traversed to the Rock n Roll Hotel for The Vita Ruins, Malajube, and Snowden last night (thanks to a ticket giveaway by ILB).

The Vita Ruins were a great surprise, although if I had done my homework they wouldn't have been. For me, drums are usually a distraction to the melody I'm trying to hear, but their drummer had me captivated. While I know nothing of these things, I'll say he's an impressively talented guy. Tim Kratzer's voice is solid but a little grating; I found myself perking up during the bridges when I could hear all the musicality these guys offer. I don't mean for that to sound negative, The Vita Ruins is a great band.

Malajube is a wall of French Canadian sound.
"Hello. I notice in DC you have bars on a lot of the windows. In Montral, we leave our doors to our house unlocked. Is ok to leave trailor outside?"

They don't speak much english(unless they were putting us on) but they do know how to make the rock n roll. The lead singer's voice reminded me very much of local Shane Hines, except in French. They were really loud, just the way my deaf ear likes it.

***********
Snowden is a much-hyped Atlanta band who unfortunately started playing too late for me to stay through their set. I heard the first three tunes and thought (1) they really like to sing that one note; and (2) they're good at it. I did a little jig and felt happy.

In a good band there are no separate voicelines or drum-lines. They are making music and if a drummer disturbs you - well, I guess they are not playing well. I'm glad, that this wasn't the case this time.
