The morning started out on a good feeling. I knew that I was gonna have a great time at the show, plus I heaven't seen Inspecter 7 in about a year, so i was stoked.
The doors opened a little later than expected. We walked in and waited there for the first band to start. I was surprised that it was 5 Minute Major, instead of NRSV,for which I was looking forward to, since they were on the flyer. 5 MM put on a great set, the kids were dancing and there was a good chemistry in the air.
After them it seemed like forever for the next band to come on. Eventually Step 2 Far went on stage and someone put an "I like little boys" sticker on the singers' jacket, he didn't find it amusing but, however; stated that "Who ever it is, you are lucky that I am in a good mood".
After the 2 hardcore bands played, it was time for the band to come on, you know who I am talking about, none other than Inspecter 7. Right away I7 began rocking, playing their usual energetic set, playing my faves such as: "Chatterbox", "H.C.S.", "Regret", and "Chattebox". It was Miss Stephs(the keyboard player) last show and what a way to end her I7 career, than with that show. Congrats Steph for all your hard work that you put into I7 over the 8 year perioud. It won't be the same without you.
After the I7 set, the band Ziggens came on. I don't know what to say about them, exept that they really did not belong at the show at all, it was just a different vibe with them. Their set was mostly boring,for me anyways, but they seemed to amuse their fans so I guess they were not too bad. They did, however; play "Breaking the Law" by Judas Priest and "Badfish" by Sublime, which I thought were pretty nifty.
It took Meph a bit to come on, but when they did, they put on a great set consisting of songs like "Saba", "Eskamoes", and all the family favorites, ending the set,surprisingly, with "Doomsday", instead of the usual "Bumble Bee Tuna Song". Over all the show was awsome and I had a lot of fun.
