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.

The Lineup:

Mike’s Pawn Shop (a local band)
Saving Abel
Gavin Rossdale
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?”

At this point, I had to leave to catch Elton John and Billy Joel at the Sommet Center. Guy, like a true Nebraskan, stayed for his fav – 311.

Before 311, Justin Kalk of The Justin Kalk Orchestra got on stage to announce some contest winners. Justin’s band is in Hard Rock Cafe’s Ambassadors of Rock Competition. They will be competing against 22 bands for a spot in the lineup with Dave Matthews Band and Bruce Springsteen in the Hard Rock Calling Concert in London. Online voting starts May 26th, and ends June 6th. VOTE PEOPLE!


Need more than me just demanding you to vote? If you are in Nashville, YouTellConcerts.com is putting together a concert at The Mercy Lounge and Justin Kalk Orchestra will be headlining. Harlott will also be playing. The show’s on June 3rd! Be there!
