Idaho can be very dreamy, or should I say shoe-gazy (in fact, they did have nice shoes). I like their slow stuff but the rocking material doesn't have that "spacious quality" that the slower tunes have. I sat perched, curling up on the steps and took it all in. It was great because I was already in that spacy mood. Dan Seta spent his time in the space zone and Jeff Martin crooned with his lacklustered baritone voice. "This is wonderful. And gorgeous," i kept thinking throught the show. Yes, they did "Skyscrape." Plus some newer songs, but they were all loud. Lifter is okay. As with Idaho I like their slowed down songs. For some reason I think they are from New Jersey. I really have no clue.

This was billed as an early show to promptly start at nine o'clock. It did not start until ten....
