a few things on this show:
the guys in ballyhoo are just a wee bit too old to be forgiven for the sound they are trying for. so bad. wish i would've gotten there later to avoid hearing this band.
LTJ were great as always. i think i've seen them at bogarts at least 8 times. plenty of hello rockview and losing streak, which is always welcome, as those are their best records. they opened with "look what happened" and ended with back to back "history of a boring town" and "all my best friends are metalheads". love these guys and will always try and see them when they are in cincinnati!
reel big fish are fun, for sure, but, the schtick is definitely wearing thin. anything after the Why Do They Rock So Hard album is pretty much dreck. they opened with "everyone else is an asshole", the only good recent era song they have. managed to hear "trendy", "the kids don't like it", and their cover of "brown eyed girl" before leaving after about 40 minutes of them due to having a very early work arrival the next morning.
