Wet Confetti, S, Panda & Angel – 2006-09-09

September 10th, 2006

Well, I haven’t taped anything all month and it’s already a quarter of the way through. I only taped four shows in August. I know, I’m a failure.

So I went to this show last night at The Paradox because S is on Suicide Squeeze Records (or she was back when her first album came out) and my boss got me on the guest list. I’m not going to turn down some free concert action. I’m no fool.

I had just been introduced to the music of Wet Confetti the day of the show. I ambled down to Sonic Boom and bought the new volume of Burn To Shine and they had a song on it that I liked a good deal. They’re music is very Dischord-esque in tone and structure. I think that’s why I like it so much. Also, the singer is cute as a button.

Jenn Ghetto (of now-defunct Carissa’s Wierd) is S. She plays with Josh Wackerly (bass) and Zaun Zehner (drums) of Panda & Angel in order to flesh out her solo effort. I really like her 2004 album Puking and Crying but she only played one song off of that album (which wasn’t even completed). Even so, the new songs are pretty great and Jenn is still getting back on her feet. I’m hoping in coming months that the band will get tighter and be able to pull off some great shows.

Panda & Angel, a band I’d never heard of, headlined. They create a layered brand of powerful pop music that is, at times, driven by some pretty funky electronic drums. Overall, I dug the tunes. Track 8 is probably the best song of the show. Also, the bass player (who, I’m told, is the drummer’s girlfriend) is really hot. Just sayin’.
