I had the chance to see another show at the underground
last night; it was pretty great to say the least.
The focal genre (according to the Underground's calendar page) was "Pop punk", which was a pretty accurate classification; it's pretty much the reason I went.
The first band, Return With Honor
, made a pretty good showing. ++ For covering War Pigs.
The second band, Black Tie Riot
, was a hardcore band. They seemed pretty good, but I'm not into that kind of music.
The third band, The Boys After
, had a pretty amazing EP for sale for $7, You'll Be Missing Home
, which was a little expensive, but good. They're apparently going to be at the Warped Tour on Aug. 23 on the Ernie Ball stage
The fourth band, Playground Patriots
, was a mashup of guys who looked like none of them belonged in the same band. Their drums were pretty amazing, stylistically different (but good)
lead guitars, and consistent vocal talent.
