Black Cat Hoodoo Throwdown
The Hoodoo Gurus rocked hard last night. Definitely worth being a little tired today. The Black Cat was sadly empty - maybe 50% full. The Gurus didn't seem to care. They brought the rock and gave us a helluva show. I could have used a few more songs from the first two records, but I really have no complaints. Everything they played, they played to the hilt. Great show. Add them to the list of reunions that don't suck.
The setlist on the right has the first song cut off ("I Want You Back") and it's missing the encores ("Axegrinder", "My Girl" and some tune I didn't know). "Miss Freelove '69" was the definite highlight for me. Psychedelic-Funky madness.
I caught the last few songs by The Fake Accents. They were ridiculously loud. I was thrilled when they were finished. If they hadn't finished when they did, I probably would have gone downstairs to avoid the noise. It's a shame, because I liked what I heard. They seem like a decent band. But after about 10 minutes, I just couldn't stand it any longer. If you're good, you don't need to be that loud.
