Okie dokey, I mentioned beer went on sale, right? Thought so.
So, back to the second stage and Eve 6. Let's talk about sucking.
Eve 6 felt the need to introduce each and every one of their songs.
I guess they felt that they didn't have any true fans at this Q101
Jamboree. Perhaps they did, but I was disappointed. I knew at least
four of the songs they played, besides their Q101 hit wonder
"Inside Out". For some reason or another, they also seemed
less than enthused to be playing a second stage. I don't recall them
playing a Jamboree in the past, but from this performance I hope
they won't be playing one in the future.
The Dude on the Right:
Hey, Big Cooter, I know you're trying to be snappy with your
"Q101 hit wonder" line, but wouldn't that be better served
for a band that only had one song you recognized? Sometimes I wonder
why I let him write anything.
Anyway, yes, I too was disappointed in Eve 6. The second stage
was set up for a band to have fun, to intermingle with the crowd,
and just plain have a great time. Eve 6 didn't seem to want to try
all that hard. Maybe it's because they were using this time to try
out new material, maybe they hadn't rehearsed in a while, but they
just didn't have it this time.
Back for Jamboree '98 I wrote "The music is fast, furious,
and can kick you right in the ass, and even though still in their
teens, the boys of Eve 6 played like the best of them, with
confidence in themselves, and blasting that confidence in the crowd
of moshing moshers, surfing surfers, and girls screaming hoping to
catch the eye of any of the boys of the band." This time there
didn't seem to be much of that. Too bad, I hope they get their punk
roots back or else their time may be up.
