I don’t think they finalized the openers until right before they went on, because there were a million bands being thrown around as openers… that being said, they shoulda picked someone else. Oui73 was very boring, and the lead singer coulda got thrown out of a thrift store, he was dressed so badly. Velour, though marginally better, still sucked. (How do these guys keep getting gigs?) Treble Charger was much better compared to the other two, though still nothing special. Then came the Tea Party. This was one of the most amazing shows I’ve ever seen, period. Jeff Martin walks out, rips into some guitar riff, and the band kicked into The River, and never looked back. Martin appeared to be having a ball up on stage, and he sounded incredible. They played all the favorites, including Fire In The Head, Sister Awake (Heroes insert) Heaven Coming Down and Psychopomp. Jeff brought out a double guitar for Walking Wounded… Then for the encore, they played Save Me (Hurt insert) and closed with the best take on Temptation I’ve ever heard! The band just could not have sounded better! Mary managed to get a copy of the Tea Party’s setlist as well!
There’s a clip of Velour’s first song on Youtube:
