Saturday was a great night for music and I was able to catch XBXRX, Numbers & Ni-Nao from Japan at the Echo before heading over to Il Corral for Turn The Screws Fest.
The attendance at the Echo was pretty sparse. The promoter didn’t put any local bands on the bill. Also, the show had to end by 10pm and I think that killed it. Most shows don’t start until then. Anyhow, it was no reflection on the bands—they put on an awesome show.
Hopefully these bands will come to Il Corral next time!?
I’ve been friends with XBXRX and their drummer Weasel Walter (also of the Flying Luttenbachers) for many years, and it was great to see them. I think their music is some of the best happening. Cheers to you, guys, and I hope I see you again soon!
