Mini-review: Ladies and Gents, The Liquid Den July
17th with S.m.F. and Creepshow was obviously just the warm-up! If you weren't @
The Shop July 24th, I can't begin to describe what you missed adequately!
The party officially coasted in @ Noon with beer and kick-ass barbecue, but didn't drop into first
gear until Xone took the stage @ 3:00. StoneBlue rocked it into second, and Creepshow
amped it right up into third. Feeding heavily off that energy, the motley assemblage of friends from other
bands that made up JMF gave the crowd a variety of new and old school metal covers, driving things
full-speed ahead into a block-rocking frenzy.
By the time the soon-to-be-homeless S.m.F. took their own home-grown stage for one final
hurrah around 9:30, ears were numb and throats were raw, but the fists pumped and the heads banged. The
mid-set addition of an indoor Harley and a lot of exaust scared off a third of the crowd, but didn't
slow much else down. If that wasn't enough, the bands were followed up by a surprise strip-tease performance
that brought most of the crowd right back inside. All hail The Shop! You will be missed!
