The Neptune hosted three great bands with three completely different sounds. It was a night of emotional uppers and downers. It was all good music, just definitely a mixed-bag of rock.
Cheap Girls, a trio from Lansing, Michigan have a garage band sound. But it’s a pretty good sound. Brothers Ben and Ian Graham are joined by Adam Aymor to make simple rock sounds. Their new album Famous Graves is out in May.
Laura Stevenson, even though soft spoken, has a great voice. Backed by an almost overpowering band, she was sometimes hard to hear. However, they have an overall great, folksy sound. Stevenson is promoting their album Wheel available now.
Against Me! KICKED ASS! This loud and rocking group brought tons of energy to the venue, which was fairly sedate until they took the stage. But as soon as they did, the crowd went nuts. Check out their new album Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
