What a joke. Bijoy’s hilarious catty puns set the tone nicely, I think, for this JAM CAT thing. As far as concerts go, it was more like what the cat dragged in.
Among the hairballs was V&P sound. When are these guys gonna get their cat together? On stage sound was boomy, undefined and messy, despite tons of spanking new equipment. What the crowd (there was a decent-sized one) heard is anybody’s guess. They cheered us on pretty loudly, especially after Look At Me, Sanity, and Paper Puli, so I guess it wasn’t completely terrible.
There were a few wayward souls throwing paper balls and those little skinny paper rockets on stage for laughs. Annoying. One particular sharp-eyed shmuck almost got said paper ball into the bell of Nate’s Sax! Nate, in his own words: “I was really mad – until I figured that the guy almost made the shot!”
Played a short set – we were asked to finish early. Galeej was supposed to get on next, but The Unknowns somehow got that slot. Messy altercation and some fisticuffs backstage, and the next thing we know, Galeej aren’t playing at all. Bummer.
That about sums it up. If you weren’t there, you didn’t miss much.
