Fri 12 Jun – Not Squares/Adebisi Shank/LaFaro @ The Stiff KittenAdebisi Shank
came on at around 8:30, I thought it was too early for them, also their set was pretty short, but all in all it was a good show. The band were pretty energetic, I wish I could say the same for the crowd (that includes myself), everyone was into to it, but we were all encaptured by that terrible insecurity of "it's too early too dance" or for some "I'm not tipsy enough to dance" but for most it was "I'll start dancing if the guys beside me start dancing..." which is the worst reason not to dance. It must be overcome.
Highlight of the set for me was "Horse
" at the very end and of course all the melodic breaks, particularly in "You Me
", there was some really nice echo going on there. I remember requesting Colin Skehan
, but it wasn't played, I just love the guitar tone at the start of that song, also they didn't play DODR
which would've been cool but I can't complain too much.
