The first band I caught was The Audition from Chicago. They were fun but could use that polish that comes from more road time with more audiences.
Plug-in Stereo was not what I expected and they were a little too mellow for this rowdy crowd. And not many people knew the words so the singing was shy. Instead everyone just clapped a lot to work off the energy.
The lead singer for We Are The In Crowd was wearing a shirt for The Maine. Which of course made her 10x hotter and by extension, the band 5x better.
Every Avenue was struggling a bit vocally, and an unusually reserved crowd didn't help. I blame it on a Monday night time slot with a mixed bag of bands.
Still, it's always good to see a show in a cool venue with fun people.
