"Melted Faces, Empty Spaces, & Sketchy Places"


Then we were off to Lee’s Palace with quickness and haste. We probably should have took it as a sign when a rolling tumbleweed passed us as we approached the venue. As we turned into the bar we could hear the band was already playing -- just in time! We rushed in to realize that Lee’s can be a pretty barren place when there are only about 20 people in the bar.

Being in a place that empty makes for a weird vibe; it seemed like every time Jenny took a picture people were watching her, and that the dozen or so fans of Modes of Transport ( ) were wondering who the hell we were. I did like what I saw from the band though; Brennan Heath seemed to have a great time on stage and was very confident when it came time for his vocals. Personally, I was a sucker for the cover of “Mad World” from the Donnie Darko movie and that Gears of War video game commercial a few years back (and Tears For Fears, even more years back). Nice touch!

Robert Cole is a sometimes vocalist, guitar player, and keyboardist to the band. He did not seem nearly as sure of himself as did Brennan, something we maybe wouldn’t have picked up on if the room was packed. At one point they brought up a female guest vocalist and it was probably the song of the night. It’s my objective opinion that this band, with the addition of a singer like this, would be worth keeping an eye on. As it was, they had a sound that was really excellent for the room and it’s a shame nobody was around to hear it. Trust me, this isn’t a criticism of Modes of Transport… the headlining band brought nobody out and didn’t even provide support during their set. It was a weird, cold vibe, but not as cold as the walk back to Sneaky Dee’s.
