Bleeding from the ears is normal.

February 5, 2002 Da’Shiz

Rap metal. Big Noize.

August 14, 2001 I Am The World Trade Center

An extremely pleasant pop 2-piece. Basically Karaoke to their own original songs, done well. And the digital theremin was cool.

July 31, 2001 Eichfeld, Haywood, Maulding

Three-piece jazz ensemble.

July 17, 2001 Abebi Stafford (website)

Improvisational jazz pianist

July 10, 2001 The Flakes

3-piece from Bradenton, Florida. Poppy alt-rock. Bass/Vocals, Guitar/Vocals, and Drums. Tight. Sounded great.

June 26, 2001 Kodac Harrison (website) (email) (upcoming shows)

“Local beatnik bluesman”

Kodac showed up with 4 strong musicians and fluidly delivered his rolling poetry and his growling lyrics. Great performance

 

Michael ran sound during the show and did a fantastic job.

June 19, 2001 Mr. Brimidge

These bozos showed up with a tape and didn’t even get around to rapping over it, too busy cutting jokes and chatting amongst themselves. Next band that tries this gets replaced by an Elf Powerbootleg.

June 12, 2001 American Dream

Five-piece ensemble, with harp/keyboard, guitar/vocals, bass/sax/vocals, cello, and drums. A challenging group to engineer; I wish that I had had more time to soundcheck. They played great.

June 5, 2001 Twittering Machine (website) and Girl Chris

I don’t know if Live @ WREK has ever featured two bands in the same show. Both bands were great, and it only took an hour and a half!

Twittering Machine played beautiful music, featuring a cello, accordion, guitar, drums, and a female vocalist.

Girl Chris is a power trio, with Yellow from Insane Jane on vocals and guitar.
