January 31st, 1998
Starting the night off were THE SOPHISTOS.
Playing a set of blues explosion
inspired originals, they rocked the
early crowd in white coveralls.
Nice 'twisted' cover of "Mony, Mony" guys.
FORMALDEHYDE played next.
Opening with new song "Soundcheck",
which they invited me up to sing,
they played a great set of
originals including "Fade out" and
Up next were the all grrrl metal band
MUDSLINGER who belted out
a mixed bag of covers and originals.
The solid set included the BUTTHOLE
SURFERS' "Goofy's Concern" and
notable original "Sluts".
Finishing off the lazy crowd
this evening were RIOTSTARTERS
and we blew the roof off the dump.
We played well and had fun.
What more could one ask for?
I learned the words to RANCID's
"Olympia, WA" for this show
because The Brat didn't want to sing it
and we finally added "I Walk Alone"
to the set after "Buzzard".
The band started a pit on stage
for our final song and Super Fry
ended up kicking over his amp.
What a mess...
Thanks to ICYW and my 3 dancers
Moe, Kelly, & Jen.
