Rain or Shine, Chrystal and Guy head to the Crawfish Boil and get fan reviews of the show.
Saturday was my first double header! We were exhausted from our GWAR experience, but we grabbed some Monsters and umbrellas, and headed to the Crawfish Boil. Little did we know, umbrellas weren’t allowed at the outdoor concert held during thunderstorms. Damn it! Ah, well – it was still a blast.
Mike’s Pawn Shop (a local band)
Boys Like Girls
We missed Mike’s Pawn Shop, and saw a bit of Hoobastank. Things started to get going with Saving Abel. They are so much better live than on their CD. I hope the production of their new album shows off more of the rockstar enthusiasm that they have on stage. They might have played it a little too safe with the first album. But, whatevz, it worked! Now that you have our attention, you know what to do, boys!
We got a few minutes to talk with Jared and Scott from Saving Abel before the show. Check it out. The sound’s not great, but you get the idea.
Gavin Rossdale was, as my mom would say, “a hunk of burning love.” He started off with Machine Head, and played lots of Bush hits. I didn’t hear “Glycerine” though. Maybe I was in some in depth convo, or on a pee break – but even then, I’m pretty sure my receptors would have picked that up. Didn’t matter. He rocked it. He hated the fact that the crowd was throwing beer bottles. Such a peaceful man.
I’ve never seen Gavin before. Did he always dance like that? I can just picture him in the living room with Gwen going over some jumpy dances. “Honey, can you teach me some stage moves?”
