Last Friday Nov, 4th I went to the Troubadour to see these bands. I got there much to early, stood around for awhile until Flash Express came on. People started showing up during their set. They rocked as usual. So much energy and dance-able tunes. Up next was one of my favorite bands ever, called Reigning Sound. I have been waiting to see them for so long and finally the were here. Greg Cartwright can do no wrong in my eyes! The man knows how to please! They did some new songs which I wasn't familiar with at all and I'd have to hear them again to give a good review of them. The sound was a little high at the Troubadour that night. It seems the rest of the tunes just flew by too quickly, probably because I could never get enough of Greg's singing. If you don't have any of Reigning Sound's Cd's, I suggest you drop everything, run to your nearest record store and buy either 'time bomb high school' or 'too much guitar' to start out with. You can do no wrong buying any Reigning Sound cd's. I was so happy to be able to see them that I didn't even mind that this totally drunk kid dropped his glass of 'drink' behind me and got it all over the back of my pants. I didn't even turn around. I don't know why I didn't do anything, I guess I just figured the guy was drunk and didn't mean to do it. He and all of his friends seemed to be either drunk or on something the whole time. He did get really close to me at one point so I gave him a little shove, he came back at me and asked why I did that. I told him because he was in my space. He just gave me this confused look and headed towards his friends who were front and center during all of the Detroit Cobras set.
I ran into my friends Rick, Kevin, Sarah and Dat.
Detroit Cobras were missing some players so Greg filled in for them. It also looked like Reigning Sound was missing some people also. hmmmm....
Rachel (D.C. singer) mentioned that for those of us who saw them last year saw her cry during a song because she had just broken up with her boyfriend. The same exact thing happend this year but she didn't cry this time and it wasn't as moving as last years performance. It was the same damn boyfriend all over again. It was a good show and she still has the 'hip' moves! she is a hip-shaker, that's for sure!
I haven't been to any other show's lately.
Have a nice 3 day weekend!
