Let's kick things off with the first band, I saw last night: Hudson. They are a hard rock act from LA and played a good set. Their music is very bluesy and has some good hooks. All, of the band members are extremely talented. This was my first time hearing them, and I quite enjoyed them.
Up next was Stitched Up Heart. I was super excited to see them again. The last I saw them was last year for a One-Eyed Doll show. Like last time, they played such a kick ass set! They opened up with the hard rocking single "Finally Free" and then preceded to play more songs off of their upcoming album Never Alone. They closed off with their latest single, from that album, "Monster". The band have such an exciting presence onstage that combined with their music really gets an audience pumped. Signer Mixi is not only gorgeous but an awesome, awesome front-woman.
By the way, it was the guitarist, Merritt's (left) birthday!
After they played, they told their fans to meet them by their merch booth. Though, I had met them before, I wanted to stop by and say hi. Mixi is quite honestly one of the sweetest girls anywhere. She is incredibly friendly and down-to-earth. It's awesome the way she treats and talks to her fans. She really cares about them and makes them feel loved. Also, awesome is that she gives a portion of proceeds to help kittens. I decided to get a download of their upcoming album. You should too, and show support for this amazing band. They deserve so much success! Go here to get it: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/stitchedupheart
And, finally it was time for some motherfucking Sick Puppies!!! They opened their most excellent set with "War". From they played some great tunes from all their albums, including "Riptide", "Odd One", and "Gunfight". They, of course, played tracks off of their upcoming release, Fury. These included songs like "Stick To Your Guns" and "Let Me Live". And, let me tell, the new songs fuckin rock!!
