Kill Paradise Drive My Grandma by Helen Bach

I have a few things to add on the topic of Forever The Sickest Kids showat Boston’s House Of Bluess last night (see previous post).

First off, I didn’t cause ‘traffic’ but actually strategically altered my speed so that other vehicles shifted position thus allowing my ability to ride tandem to the tour van for Kill Paradise. (and they drive like someones grandmother all that was missing was AARP window sticker)

The Boston House of Blues is a fantastic venue the staff was so professional and personable. Whens the last time your ticket was taken by someone dancing, they like their jobs, that made me like being there. Huge ceilings and a properly angled floor made ease of viewing fabtastic. A security staff that wasn’t beef and brawn but actually cordial and successful in managing the crowd.

Down with Webster kicked butt there may be 7 of them but they’re doing something right, they were a party on the stage, I don’t think they could pull that off with less members. My Favorite Highway was unmentionable and Sing it Loud were actually very good but the Magpie was right, egos are large for the 3rd band down. I must say we have met up with band members a few times and they’re very kind and attentive but on stage they come off as arrogant. But again they did a great job if you cut out their bull. The Rocket Summer. My God that man is contagious again I agree there is no other word that inspirational. He wasn’t preaching he was far to positive. I am very excited to see Rocket Summer again in December and I will make a very firm point of meeting up with Bryce for a few words. He is fantastically talented and in a sea of crap a beacon of bright.

Forever the Sickest Kids remind me of the dumb ass gear heads in high school. The sneer the innuendo the whole schlock, think Vinnie Barbarino with a microphone. BUT and this is huge- they’re FUN. I can see why they are popular in this ‘scene’ and yeah the drummer needs to reevaluate his demeanor but in all honesty his lack of social skills play into the persona their live show put forth.

And- yes Mary Magpie did fall asleep with a smile on her face under a blanket on the 2 hour ride home, she even woke 4 hours later to get to school.. but not before loading the newly purchased Rocket Summer disc onto her iTouch…. priorities in order.

Next stop Saosin, Interparty System, and Eye Alaska November 28.. a whole different scene for sure
