I trucked down I-90 to see two of my favorite local bands, as A Thousand Shades of Cold were supposed to be on the bill, but apparently canceled at the last minute. This left the Sixpin guys scrambling for openers, and yet they managed to find three! Do Driver and Five Point didn’t really catch my fancy, but thankfully I had Adam and Kristen to talk with. The Fated Grey, however, were much better. A solid alt-rock band that I wouldn’t mind seeing again. Good songs, good singer, band sounded good, enjoyable to watch. We said hi to Andy and got ready to watch Sixpin do their thing, which they did impeccably. It’s always better to go see “local” shows when the bands are GOOD. And Sixpin is. They always sound tight, Andy can sing very very well, and the songs are well crafted. On this night, they ran through most of their “new” catalog, some highlights from the Made to Bleed album, and ended the show with their awesome cover of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”, which brought some of the members of the other bands up on stage, plus some of the ladies!
