Quickly wanted to mention Airborne Toxic Event were great last night at the Echo and I enjoyed them far more this time then the couple shows I caught last year - due to no fault of their own but how incredibly tired or distracted I was. Corey enjoyed their sound akin to a mix of Bright Eyes and the Kinks (his words) while I kept thinking that I could see myself doing a lot more bouncing during their residency.
Now The Happy Hollows were what we came to see and they delivered fantastic jangly noise rock with fits of overloaded power surges in an already energetic set. Really Corey should be the contributor I've already asked him to be on this blog since I'm just going to steal his thoughts again: when the guy was singing, those songs came off a lot like At The Drive In and this comment from my post below:
- I'll throw in another helping of love love love the Happy Hollows. All the best parts of all the bands I ever loved. "If I was in a band, it would be a band like this."
That DJ Cheese Zombie is not one to mince his words about a band's live performance apparently.
