Ahh, the illustrious Buffalo Edgefest. For a couple years, LaSalle Park was the place to be every summer, as the Edge would usually get at least a couple bands I’d want to see. This year Econoline Crush was the big draw for us. Upon our arrival, Splender was first up, and we were fairly impressed by them. For only knowing “Yeah, Whatever”, we liked what we heard of the rest of the set. The girls thought the bass player was hot, and also thought their guitar player looked like Trevor Hurst from EC. Showoff was okay, a typical punk-pop band from that era. We saw Shades Apart on the other stage while waiting for EC, they were okay too, even though most people (like me) only knew Stranger By The Day at that point. Then, Econoline Crush came up, and it was “the return of Trevor”, who was supposedly in his finest “liquid sex” form that day, according to the ladies. EC played an awesome set (couldn’t tell you what they played, unfortunately). We had met Ziggy before the show, and then met the whole band at the autograph tent; Mary got a picture with Trevor. We caught most of the Watchmen’s set while in line for autographs, and we were impressed by them as well.
Apparently Kottonmouth Kings, The Verve Pipe and Moby were on this bill also. Totally forgot about that, totally didn’t see them.
