Heartless Bastards frenzied the crowd for the early nooner show on Monday, the last day of Sasquatch 2009. A Cincinnati-by-way-of-Texas alt-country group led by Erika Wennerstrom (who sang her soul out by the way) killed it, from sound check to last note. The rough-hewn americana infused garage rock sound was exactly what I needed to start off my morning!
Black Moth Super Rainbow have intrigued me since the moment I heard them. Their stage show was lacking, but I didn't expect much from a knob-twiddlin' electro-pop band.
I wasn't sure how their psychedlic sun-tinted sappy sound would translate well live, but I was pleasantly surprised. Their stage show was lacking, but as a knob-twiddlin' electro-pop band, it was pretty much what I expected: a little less punch, sound waves warmly vibrating outward washing over and over each other in loud layers.
More details about my first ever Sasquatch experience (and the bands I saw there) coming in the next few days!
