sorry, i'v been lazy with the blog. anyway a place to bury strangers put on a great show. really loud, rocking, cool stage and light setup. reminded me of seeing the strokes for the first time, not that they sounded like the strokes, just good, loud rock with an edge that wasn't metal or punk pop. talked with them a little after the show and it seemed like they had a good time. always nice to hear british accents here in lincoln.
battleship gray sounded great on a big stage,tho i have to say i'm biased as i know those guys. that was their first show in a club (and opening for a national act). hope to see more of them. i believe they will play at the capitol punishment show at the joyo on may 27th, which will also have a rebates reunion. dave "stinky" weise (sp?) who also played with buck naked and the barebottomed boys, pearl harbor, and wilson gil (among many others) will be coming back from san fran for that show. that's a can't miss show!
