It’s a two for one show review today. Why? Because I back to backed these shows in one day, ten hours on your feet watching bands, at the end of the day I was sore but it was pretty fun.
The Trap House – Parkville, MD
Thursday, April 12th, 2012
The Trap House is a new house venue around, this was their first show. I hope it works out well for them because I liked this place a lot. It sounded good, it wasn’t a shithole and the dude running things seems like a good guy. I hope to be visiting this place a lot more in the future.
The Headies - I’ve seen the Headies a few time, they’re always fun, just like this time. If you ever get the chance to see them make sure you do it, it’s awesome.
Paul Newman & The Ride Home – I’d never heard of this band before but they were pretty good. A band with a ukulele always gets some respect.
Timeshares - I’d just seen Timeshares last night, they were real good last night but today they were even better. They took their thing to another level and were fucking great.
Spraynard - I also saw Spraynard last night, I think last night they had a better set but they were still a blast to see today. These guys are so good.
Mixtapes - Mixtapes came in and proved that they deserve every bit if recognition that they get. Their set was awesome, and great fun, it was a no brainer that I was going to see them again the same day after that set.
Dartagnan - I also saw this band last night with Timeshares and Spraynard, their set today was way better than their last one. They were a lot of fun and real good.
Charm City Art Space – Baltimore, MD
Thursday, April 12th, 2012
After the house show there was some time to kill then off to my favorite place to see a show, the Charm City Art Space for round two.
The Eubonics - Local hip hop group with just two dudes, they were pretty good. Not a whole lot to say really, with something like this it’s either going to be bad or good, luckily they fall on the good side of things.
Trashkanistan - My second time seeing Trashkanistan they seemed way sloppier this time around but it was still good stuff, these guys are pretty fun.
Light Years - Light Years were alright, they were a good middle band. Enjoyable to watch but they didn’t really win me over as a super fan or anything.
Fake Boys - I wasn’t into the Fake Boys at all, they also seemed to play way too long.
Mixtapes - Mixtapes for the second time today. This set was a bit of a bummer for one simple problem, the severe lack of vocals. As much as I love the art space they seem to have this problem from time to time. Despite that problem Mixtapes still played their hearts out and it was a fucking fun set. Support these good people
