In a recent book on the Seattle "grunge" scene the author wonders aloud in a chapter why everyone in Seattle hates Candlebox so much, and points out that contrary to the myth, they didn't move to Seattle to cash in, they were already here. But he misses the point. They suck. Their songs are awful, and there are literally scores of Seattle bands toiling away at shit jobs that are better and are more deserving of the filthy lucre than these assclowns.

Saw these fellows Friday up in Louisville. Nice crowd at a small venue (Mercury Ballroom). Had 2 opening acts with band (Pete RG & Lullwater). The Lullwater band (from Athens, GA) was quite impressive.

Listened to them for about 1 hour. Played about 11 songs during that time. Lead singer (Kevin) does a nice job fronting band. has a good sense of humor. He also hates Dubya & loves weed, so we have something in common. Have 2 excellent guitarists, I enjoyed myself a lot.

Saw Candlebox as part of a retro-fest over the weekend. Their performance was great, as they had a lot of fun on stage (reminiscing and playing all their 20+ year old material). I saw them six years ago as part of another radio-station festival, so I guess this is where they are getting the gigs (?). They did put out some great music back in the day during my junior-high years. Glad they are still rocking it.

Other bands I saw at this day-long retro-fest (that don't have a page on this site) were Alien Ant Farm, Local H and Stir. Stir is a popular local St. Louis band that had a couple national hits but broke up as they were getting bigger. They are now back together again.

Glad you saw them, Jason. Fine act that gives you a great show. That festival sounded sweet.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
