|December 9, 2003||Deer Hunter
Cole says: “Deer Hunter is a noise band with homoerotic undertones that are relayed subliminally through guitar amps. Many orthodox buddhists have found their music highly offensive. You may contact there occult leader Bradford Cox out of notown somewhere inbetween motown and no wave at 678 471 5837”

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.
