The Roxy 2-25-13
Other then some technical difficulties primarily with the lead microphone’s, all the bands did an awesome job. The High on Lows, being the starters had a low crowed, which was to be expected for a Monday show at 7. I also feel they got short hand since all the audio was set up to Still Standings needs rather then their style. Even with some drawbacks the High on Lows showed some large potential. I was really impressed with I Killed the Symphony, the lead singer provides really strong vocals and they created a memorable style in both sound and look. I met Stitched Up Heart and Downtown Attraction the first time in June at the House of Blues down the street. Both played an awesome show. Stitched Up Heart, their experience with how they handle a crowed, maybe in some ways going over board when they brought the crowed up, nearly filling the stage. Downtown Attraction proved they deserved being signed by working with crowed, giving plenty of movement on stage and always working the crowed. Still Standing, all awesome guys, they have a very streamline sound that begs to be listened on CD. The only downside is that since it is a three-member band and with both the singers also playing guitar it doesn’t allow them to stray to far from the microphone. All in the end making them sound great but limiting them in what movements and interactions they have with the crowed.
