I've been sitting on this post for two days, but honestly, I don't have much to say about the show. All three bands kicked ass. Royal Campaign got the night off to a great start. The funny thing is that I've only seen the band one other time a long while ago, but I recognized a couple of their songs, which I think says something about the killer vocals and crafty songwriting.
I had the chance to talk to David and Peter from Birdmonster for a bit before they played and they really are such nice guys. David's mom and grandmother were in attendance again, so I said hi to them, too. The set was stellar and the band's energy onstage, regardless of the size of the crowd, really is infectious. David never stops smiling, Justin rocks hard whether on keys or bass, and Peter on guitar has such a huge personality that comes out in his vocals and through his instrument.
I'd never heard The Rumble Strips before the show, but their set had me hooked from the beginning. They're songs are catchy and I guess I'd call them indie-pop. The vocals soared, and it was hard to look away from the singer's facial expressions. Add in the backing horns and the bassist grabbing the snare for a couple songs and beating the shit out of it, and it made for a completely engaging performance.
