"MOMBOB #5 Review"

The Kastaways advance to Summerfest gig, by 4 votes

Kastaways 72, Spirit Creek 68, Hyak Ro and Deflection in the 50's, Great show at the Miramar Theatre. Celebrity judge Desmond Bone aka Edgar Allen Cash broke the tension of the vote count with his poem about cigarettes. Like to thank all the newspapers in town for nothin. not a blurb, not even a calendar listing. They take all the live music nightclubs ad dollars, but do they do anything for local music? I saw Voot Warnings on the cover of one like 6 years ago. haven't seen a show reviewed since Tim Forks. that was in the 80's. Read one Joel Mcnally article you read them all. No wonder its a cover band town! Artists, hit the road, you'll be treated much better than here. Anyhoo, I'm getting bands contact info to studios, but of course some phone numbers are no longer current, so Im working on that, but within a week the studios will have numbers, and contact names of who won exactly how many hours, and who is eligible for the 40 an hour discounts. feel free to call them in a week. Rock category round one winners are going to Walls have ears, Radix gets the Punk Glam bands, Studio Z the the Metal, and Sound Sound the Americana acts. Guess I will have to send in the mail to the round two bands the Wades guitar shop gift certificates, so Ill be calling folks to get their addresses if I don't have them all. I have most addresses. Hyak Ro will be performing at Center street daze courtesy of the Uptowner as the Wild card act of round two. Recognizers at North ave Solstise party gig, so come on out to those free festivals! Kastaways hang in there, I was told today, that I will know tomarrow, what day your playing the Leinenkugel stage. 27 original music bands this year, all entertaining, all nice guys (and gals) nice fans, Some amazing talent, Some of the best I have ever heard anywhere. It was my pleasure to hear everyone, at least once. The bands I heard three times it was still good! Nobody sucked this year! not even one "ok lets start the song again" retakes. Two tie scores, two coin flips.(what are the freakin' odds of that?) no supreme court interventions. Couple storys to tell, some bands met some other bands to do shows with. Cool. Maybe we'll see you next year. Maybe, Maybe not. Its only Rock and Roll.
