Last night Kev and I went to see a concert that I bought for Kev way back in September for his birthday. It was moved from it's original location to a bar/club here in town, because of low ticket sales which wasn't our favorite idea but you know. The bands we saw were Tempered Cast (sorry couldn't find a pic), Aranda, Red, Saving Abel, and Puddle of Mudd. The sound was not great in this venue and it was pretty smoky. We had an overall good time though.

Aranda: They were first on the list and sound issues aside Kev and I agree that they did an okay job and we did miss about half of their set due to some confusion with the timing of the concert but hey what can you do?

Tempered Cast: Probably my least favorite of the opening acts, they didn't really impress me much at all.

Red: These guys were my favorite of the opening bands. I enjoyed their set and Kev says they were okay.

Saving Abel: Kev's current favorite band, despite more sound issues which is more a venue problem than a band problem. I enjoyed them and thought they put on a great live show.

Puddle of Mudd: I really enjoyed this set, and screamed my head off singing to all of their songs. Well that is until they started playing cover songs... what? they have plenty of their own music to not have to play covers. They covered AC/DC and Nirvana. There was the walking off the stage to get everyone to yell them back on for their last two songs. I hate that ego boost thing, because I knew they weren't done they were just waiting for everyone to yell to bring them back. We are there, so just play it's what we came for lol. Then in their last song they interjected it with lyrics from summer lovin' and then called it grease lightning... uh... yeah... so anyways overall I liked their set but was less than impressed with the covers. They also changed the tune of their last song as everyone was leaving to the tune of a swing song. It wasn't band but definitely interesting.
All in all we had a good night even though we felt old when we got home and I had to get up early to go to class this morning without much voice, and well Kev didn't have to get up today since he was scheduled off. We were planning on going to Lubbock today but I am going to go next week. As long as I get it done before next thursday we will be good to go. In the meantime we are just spending an almost all day off together.
Time to find some lunch and run an errand or two and maybe catch up on a movie or two. Have fun!
