The Phil Aiken army set the tone early with a great set filled with smart, tight, pop tunes played with a stonesy edge and joyous abandon. what a great band and a great set of songs.
The Teenage Prayers closed the night masterfully - great vocal harmonies, great guitars, tight rhythm, and all around great songs. these guys definitely are on my top ten list... great stuff.
Instead of my usual sunny 'we had a great set and a great time' update i'll be honest - while we did have a great time and always love playing whatever the circumstance - this set was more of a struggle for us to get up for than usual - two of us, including our lead singer - were deathly ill with chest colds - so we feared it was going to be a challenge getting the songs across and keeping the energy level up - but as soon as we hit the stage things were instantly better. While it would not be a night for scissor kicks and splits - we really enjoyed playing and had a great time being part of such a great night and great bill.
