Man this had all the ingredients for a great show. It was my first time checking out Lightspeed Champion and I had just seen an amazing show six months or so back with Cass McCombs at Joe's Pub. Lightspeed Champion had a few moment but the lighting and his performance just lacked anything to write home about. After Cass McCombs took the headline spot and played six new seventies rock songs in a row, we left! We couldn't stand it. Was just an off off night? Nothing seemed to add up and each artist seemed so lazy about there performance. McCombs sung the new songs reading lyrics off notes for his new material which borrowed heavily off Lou Reed, Velvet Underground but didn't hit home in the same ways. The lyrics seemed rather trite and the songs seemed long in the tooth. Was it like a Jim Jarmusch film and as soon as we left the night was amazing and the joke was on us or was it just a bad show?
