07/08/2017 Fuel, Unwill (Rochester, NY @ The German House)

[American Acid was first band on, didn’t see them.]

This show was early. Like, Fuel came out on stage around 8:30 on Saturday night early. I was dumbfounded, and thankfully I didn’t do my usual “put the kids to bed first” routine, or I would have missed most of it! I wonder if the lack of ticket sales led them to just say the hell with it and get it over with, as there weren’t too many people in the place. Definitely sparse for the openers. Unwill is a local Rochester band, and were almost a bit too heavy to be opening for Fuel, but no matter, they were pretty decent for their half hour.

Regardless of what time they came out and the size of the crowd, Brett and the new set of hired guns put on an excellent show. Just like old times at the start, with Untitled into Jesus or a Gun. Mary Pretends was back in the set as well, but this time we got two covers (Fly Like An Eagle and Mary Jane’s Last Dance), and only one new song in Puppet Strings. I would have liked more originals rather than the covers, and Cold Summer or Time For Me To Stop from the new album would have been cool. In any event, it was still a really fun show, a trip down memory lane, and I got back home early!
