Nice release party all around. This is the first time I've seen The Stepford Five live before believe it or not. It sounded good. Jason and Keith are able to build up this sound with their guitars that really resonates well and I was trying to think if I've heard other bands in Columbus do that and couldn't think of any. I was feeling a bit tired and was thinking that I was going to duck out of the show early but I wound up staying until the end.
Campfire Crush was really great. I didn't know what to expect and I'm not sure I can even describe what I saw or heard, but I will definitely see them again if they play in Columbus.
The Whiles, well, I've seen The Whiles a million times and they continue to sound great. Kelly Taylor thinks that Zack should have been dancing more
I actually did see Chris moving around a bit, bobbing his head and whatnot. Nice!
And, having Jon play between bands was a really nice touch and I hope to see it more often. Four band bills can be a bit much, but when it's somebody playing solo during the intermissions, it works really well (so would, I suppose, a DJ).
