Swervedriver at Emo’s

This was a great show.  Opening act, Ringo Deathstarr was really good.  I really enjoyed their shoe gazey and often ‘good 80′s music’ sounds.  One song reminded me a little of Echo and the Bunnymen, which is awesome.  Terra Diablo played….then…. Swervedriver.  The performance was great and everything seemed right on.  The whole show was like a time travel trip back to 1995.  Seeing friends that we only see out when our obscure favorites bands come to town.  Reminded me of those great Sunday punk rock soccer games at Austin High.  All the kids we used to play with are now musicians, record labels owners, or other associated type jobs.  And of course those of us that sold out our 9-5 weekdays for a paycheck to support a family, but as long as we still rock and make it to shows, we stay true… in my opinion.
Wow, that was a silly little ramble.

All in all it was a great show and if you are able to catch Swervedriver on their tour, definently hit it.
