The Vision of A Dying World & Paddleboat @ TNT

TNT is one of my favorite local recurring events in town, though I have to admit I haven't even gone into the museum the last few times I've attended. I'm there for the music and for hanging out with friends with cheap drinks in the open air. This time was no exception and I got to hang out with my bff Kristian who was visiting from LA.

The Paddle Boat played first, but I was at the side area listening and didn't pull out my camera. They sounded great as the three of them sat in chairs on the stage and they've got some great upcoming shows, so make sure you check them. The Paddle Boat is a side project of Jeremy from the Vision, and originally I believe it was just a solo project, but now Jackson is playing with him, along with Jane who plays clarinet and adds to the vocals.

A short while later, The Vision of A Dying World took the stage. Their unique sound makes them easily one of my favorite local bands made all the better because they're such good guys. Still, I was a little surprised to see that the boys seem to have an increasing female fanbase. Ladies love The Vision, apparently. Anyway, it was fun taking pictures of them because there was a slideshow of pop icons on the screen behind them while they played. I especially like the gremlin...

Anyway, after the set, Andrea convinced me that we should check out Howlin Rain and Black Mountain at the Casbah, so I'll get to that in another post.
