Tonight's first round of entertainment came with the three bands/solo guitarist playing in the Underground. The first guy was an acoustic guitarist, who was fairly good given that he was just by himself. I didn't think he was the absolute best, but he was enjoyable; definitely the guy you want to kick things off. The next 'band' was the Milkstains, consisting of the drummer and the guitarist. Personally, I thought that they were decent; their songs were good, but they didn't really sing for the majority of them and that the songs were a bit too short for my liking. Now, the main attraction was The Vermillions, and they were enjoyable. Their lead singer wore a bow tie, and rolled up his jeans, and he wore chucks, so initially, I thought he was going to be a douche and have some crappy stage shenanigans (honestly;that was my initial reaction). That bow tie ended up leading to a short but intense texting conversation with Molly, who was across the table from me (we couldn't really hear each other during the performances, so we communicated by text). But hey, he turned out to pretty dang good and he seemed like a nice guy. They had some solid tunes and it was an enjoyable night!
Now, the tool of the night was this guy with a fairly large mohawk who was dancing like a moron during two songs. I mean, he was just flailing his arms like you wouldn't believe, and the music wasn't exceptionally rocking, so to speak. Then again, I will give him credit-it was hilarious how intense he was getting.
