Sat 7 Jun – The Helio Sequence
First of all, comments on the venue:
I really liked the location and feel of the place, and loved the free cups of water (with free limes!). It was also nice a cool that night, which made for a very enjoyable experience. One thing that majorly bugged me that night, though was the lead-singer mic kept feeding back for all three acts...you'd think they would fix it after the first couple of times, but no...
Anyway, first up was some local band New Roman Times
who had some groupies next to me in the crowd =P They had a really good sound, but the vocals were definitely lacking. The bass, drums, and guitars were very good and I wonder if in their recordings the singer sounds better. Other than that, the music was really nice to listen to.
Next was another local band (I'm pretty sure they're local anyway) Low Line Caller
. Once they started playing was when I started to forget where I was, the music was that captivating and sweeping and full. …
