This show actually has nothing to do with DC whatsoever. All of the bands are from Baltimore. The show was in Baltimore. Baltimore.
At least these bands occasionally play DC? You should definitely listen to these Baltimore bands. Then, they might play DC more often, so I don’t have to travel to Baltimore (even though it’s worth it).
Nonetheless, Baltimore bands Gloria Adios, Treeforts, Monteclair and The Think Tanks played Sidebar Tavern, a dive bar venue that I don’t really like. The lighting was awful. Whoever thought green and just green the entire set would qualify as good lighting is an idiot. The sound system kept feeding back vocals. The sets definitely went past the Baltimore noise ordinance and the venue smelled like pee and BO. The four bands still managed to make a good show from their weird banter to profound lyrics. (See: Treeforts screaming “I want to get drunk with my best friends!”)
So long, Kyle Bacon of Gloria Adios. This was a great last show.
Really though, don’t use strictly green light for the entire set. Photographers will hate you.
