4-17-04 SHOW REVIEW
Madlin's Coffee House, homestage of original music for coffee lovers in trendy Temecula, CA, played host to a charity show on April 17, 2004. The event was for a child named Melanie, stricken ill with cancer. On a hope filled night, the buzz was in the air and all the bands and the crowd reflected it. Here is my review of the night.
Opening Band: IF ALL ELSE FAILS - An Upland, CA five piece setup in the traditional style of punk rock bands producing a balanced sound of original rock 'n' roll, see record review and check for new show updates at www.iaef.net
Second set: BOBBY BREAKDOWN - How local can you get? Not much more than this band from Murrieta Valley High School consisting of just three pieces, guitar, bass, and drums. These young rockers ask and answer the Question, when is scream-MO not scream-MO? See Breakdown In-View.
Third set: In Silence - A 'phoenix' band rising from the ashes of 'MUTT'. This five piece punk band from the Planet Hemet area, still fairly local, plays double rhythm original punk rock and delivers screaming vocals from a 'Christian version' of Marilyn Manson, sans the missing rib and upside-down cross. These boys in black with the industrial strength Goth sound (guitar, guitar, vocals, bass, drums) are ready to play at your next mosh pit gathering during the full moon. Place any inquiries for band info on the Full Value Message Board.
Headliners: 8th Day Fall - An Orange County four piece band consisting
of drums, bass, and rhythm and lead guitars. The drummer, Henry, who
hales from another fairly local locale named Canyon Lake which is just
up the I-15 from Full Value HQ, is friends with the family of the little
girl who was diagnosed with cancer. It is this band that is behind the
whole benefit concert idea and Full Value Entertainment and Madlin's
Coffee House were only too happy to oblige. Perhaps too, that is why
this band, a So Cali mix of polos and T-shirts making for the skater
rock/outlaw look, play political songs and open with an African drum
ensemble accompanied only by the bass. It is a truly unique opening
and totally in line with what I've come to expect from OC. For those
who read this review and don't live in Southern California, let's just
say that there was a reason they make a TV show called 'The OC'.
