It just occured to me that sonic anarchy isn't really anarchy to me since I enjoy the music i usually talk about. To try and break the cycle let me rage about what I can only describe as the sonic apocolypse . Let me count the ways in which I have become irritated by this concert.
1. Gin blossoms ... more like jizz blossoms. Yuck.
2. Soul Asylum - well the internet has failed me. Right in here should be a video of Sweet Dee from IASIP singing that 'runaway train' song drunkenly. Because, well that's the most interesting part about the band soul asylum. Which apparently is so fucking uninteresting that even the internet has failed to cover facets of THEIR ONLY HIT EVER.
3. On top of these shitheap bands being the 'headliners' the promo goes on to threaten us with 5 HOURS of this. I just threw up in my mouth.
4. Oh did i mention that Uncle Plum is opening? Aren't they 50? Are they still trying to sound like Blink 182, even after Blink 182 has stopped trying to sound like Blink 182? Uncle Plum? Lame.
Did anyone read the previous post which mentioned the disparity in cultural awareness between Rochester and Buffalo? Add this one to the score sheet.
In the end it's actually kind of sad as the event is supposed to promote genessee brewery (which unless they're giving it away for free you might want to BYO), and also try and get some donations together for a good cause. Both quite noble endeavors, but it's like the deaf are leading the way. Actually strike that, the deaf would at least bring in some acts with awesome bass. I have no idea whose warped idea of a good concert would pair these together and try to engage the public.
I suppose it makes me a bad person for crapping on the event, but damn, they made it near impossible, and a fully laughable one at that..
If someone followed me here from BR please excuse the use of jizz above. But not really. I mean this is called sonic anarchy, not sonic bible study.
