Stateside affair (5/2007)
A strange brew in this old hardware store turned microbrewery. A lovely physical plant and staff and you can spend $$$ on entrees or $$ on snacks and a tavern menu if you get there before the show… the kitchen closes at 10:00. the host is friendly. Lesser knowns seem to often start off and to offer the best listening. When they are done, a couple of apparently regular bands with an odd tatooed barbie like zombie following incapable of original thought in dress, comes to play. They offer mostly metal at a volume which accentuates a general failure to strive for technical accomplishment or virtuosity. Similarly the vapid crowd responds to the ranting profanity and a general lack of other content in the overly self impressed meandering monologues of unschooled frontmen between songs: The EMCEE loses control. Outside, afterward, a tense showdown in the parking lot between two groups vying to win the nights least cranial content award. Overall a disappointing night and not containing the welcoming community and spirit that so often comes with playing music. huske needs to reach out into the piedmont for some of the pickers who live there and bring into this night, the common sense and technical accumen this region is noted for.
