Talking Head – Baltimore, MD
Wednesday February 25th 2004
To this day this is still one of the best shows top to bottom I’ve ever been to, maybe even the best. Partly due to the fact that going into this I knew MTX and I kind of knew Beatnik Termites, besides that it was just filler, or so I thought.
Gamma Rays – Gamma Rays were awesome, I got turned into an instant fan. I got to see them a couple more times before they broke up after this, they were always good but this was the best I’d ever see them.
Proteens – Another band that made me an instant fan, great pop punk, super cool, I bought some Proteens stuff pretty quickly after this show.
Copyrights – A band that I can’t imagine playing the Talking Head today, this was my first time even hearing them. Catchy as hell, I knew this was a band to pay attention to. They weren’t quite as energetic as they are today if you see them but they were solid as hell.
Beatnik Termites – Beatnik Termites almost stole the show with this one, I’ve seen them a bunch of times since this, and they’ve always been good but this was by far the best I’ve ever seen the band. Amazing pop punk, great stage presence, everything you want from a great band.
Mr. T Experience – The first and (so far) only time I’ve seen my favorite pop punk band of all time. They played for a good amount of time and played a lot of awesome songs. Dr. Frank even did some of the acoustic stuff. It was basically everything I could ask for…except that it did end at some point. I’d love to see MTX again because they were so damn awesome this time around.
