Nice to be back at the newly-reopened First Avenue.

Too bad Urge Overkill still sucks ass live.

I walked by the Entry and heard the opening chords of the Midnight Evil's set, and that would have kicked way more ass. But I got to hang with my old friend (yikes, I've known him since 4th grade) Andy. He bought a cd from Picked-to-Clickers Thunder in the Valley. I really needed to drink and rock, because i got a written warning for "Attendance Issues" at work today. This, after busting my ass on a project all week. Oy. I'm so pissed. Somebody make Blogumentary my job okay?

So what was your overall impression of the audience? I know everyone keeps saying they will go to First Ave all the time now to make sure it stays open, but I'm not that optimistic about people. Keep thinking that once the shinyness wears off it will go back to the old ways.

Well, it was kinda sparse. But I attribute that more to the lack of interest in the band than the venue. I think the Entry was hoppin' though. The Entry is probably my favorite rock venue.

My friend Dave's band played the Entry last Saturday, and they had a solid turnout (120+ paying patrons, 140+ folks total). Pretty good considering it was so last minute. Sadly the Entry isn't the make or break business for First Ave as a whole.

Ooh. I saw the Midnight Evils' first show in St. Cloud many, many moons ago. An old friend put out their first 7" a number of years ago. Since then they got signed to Estrus and had a song on a video game soundtrack. Not bad for a bunch of Minnesotans...
