June 2 - Gay Beast & Old Time Relijun

Gay Beast

Something must be in the water. Our local music scene has been crazy recently. Maybe the warmer weather has something to do with it, but there has been a significant increase in the number of people attending local shows. And this swelled community isn’t just sitting idly at the bar – they’re energetic, they’re dancing, they’re singing along. The Digitata show at the Entry was a prime example of this new energy. Perhaps even more indicative was the next night’s packed show at Big V’s. The people came in droves to see Gay Beast – perhaps the hottest band in the Twin Cities right now. But Gay Beast wasn’t the only band that delivered. Openers Last Legs were awesome, and Styrofoam Duck (who had transformed into a full-out noise band, and performed on the floor by the bar) were awesome. Headliners, Olympia’s Old Time Relijun were, of course, awesome. If you want to get a better idea of this energy of which I speak, check out the videos section on my Myspace page. I took a short video of Old Time Relijun’s set with my little digital camera. It turned out pretty well considering the limitations of my camera.
