Sapphire advertised doors
open at eight. I showed up at nine and there was a long line
outside and they were not letting anyone in. Typical of this
lackidasial club. Souviner was sloppy but could sound almost
decent if they played together and in the same tune. Joe Pop,
from Tampa, is a fast. energetic pop punk trio. They look so
funny. All three of them are "heavy" and have the same
haircut, cut to the skin. They played a fast, well played set
but I just don't like that fast punk.
Jaxbox was amazing. I haven't heard all the stuff since Grippe,
which I played along with using my brothers bass guitar back
in the day. Such lovely bass lines that record had! When did
that record come out? Anyhow WPRK plays Jawbox with frequency
so I heard most of the new record, including that rad Tori Amos
cover. I am impressed to how well they play together. They are
truly a great rock and roll band.
