The first band was Mike Blanks and the Sex, Drugs, Alchohol, Band. The SDABs had a really good set design;they had bras on mic-stands, pyro-technics, and other stuff that was cool to see. Their music, however, lacked in all espects; maybe they should concentrate on making better music, instead of concentrating on their set design. Their songs were about stupid subjects like: fucking someones mom, or shooting cum, or getting drunk. I think Mike should have stayed with Blanks 77, because his new band needs to receive a big boot.
King Django made up for the first horrible band. He put on a great set, playing some of his new stuff, as well as some Stubborn All-Stars' tunes. He doesn't need any pyro-technics to bring a good set to you, but he tried anyways with his flame-spitting abilities.
The funny thing is that the Pietasters played last year at exactly the same date in NYC, but I couldn't go. This year, however, history was not gonna repeat itself.
Pietasters' set was awesome. They played fast aswell as slow stuff. I guess that is what I like about them; they add some diversity to their sound. They played my fave songs: "Out All night," "Girl Take It Easy," "Wish I Could Change My Mind," and a Business cover "Drinking & Driving"
The show was good, except for the first band. I enjoyed my birthday, even though I went alone, but it doesn't matter.
