Trans Am, Zombi, Black Taj – 2007-04-23

April 24th, 2007

I held out on buying a ticket for this show in hopes that Live Eye TV would pick it up and get me in on the cheap (RE: free). Turns out that’s what happened and off to the show I went.

Black Taj were very jammy/bluesy rock that I could get into. Toe tappin’ you might say. They verged on becoming noodly but maintained enough composure not to fall into the dark side of, well, you know… jam bands.

Zombi, whom I have seen and taped twice before, were as awesome as always. It’s always cool to see them get such a great response from the crowd as an opening band who plays what can only be describe as “80’s action movie music”. And I love it. I love it so.

Trans Am was something else to be sure. I had never heard them before but I had certainly heard of them. They’re fairly prolific as far as their discography goes (reaching all the way back to 1996) so it’s kind of hard to miss their presence if you listen to enough music. They proceeded to melt faces and shake asses all across the venue. The crowd wasn’t that huge (they didn’t even open up the mezzanine) but it was still a good time for everyone involved. It sort of felt like a “fans only” affair since everyone was so into it and getting jiggy and whatnot. Hoo-boy I said jiggy.

Update: Zombi set now included!

    Thanks for posting this. I’ve become huge Zombi fan as of late and can’t wait for them to come to Boston. They were supposed to come last year but cancelled at the last minute.
