Main Stage, 2pm Saturday

 

Tweet: AC but not DC.

 

What happened?: Kicking off day 2, and the main stage, these lads are contemporary punk-funk-indie-schmindie with the time-changes beloved of so many.  They share musical space with the likes of Key Of Atlas, Colly Strings, ASIWYFA and a host of other local acts, but given a slight twist by a bit of a drawled out vocal, rather than the usual yelps that accompany this style of music.  Being on first, they suffer from a small, suffering, docile crowd, who fail to charge the stage in appreciation.  Still, I doubt if it’ll be their (Custer’s) Last Stand, although they will need to improve and develop to find their own distinct identity locally.

 

Shining Light: We all like a bit of showmanship, and one of the lads takes it upon himself to spin the guitar around his body mid-song.  What exactly this accomplished musically, we don’t know, but it looked good.

 

Meltdown:  They’re in a competitive market, and being able to identify so many other bands locally doing similar sorts of things means they may find it hard to stand out.
