We saw Ian Thomas sit in with the New Familiars on friday night, and he was pretty convincing. We caught Ian solo on sunday afternoon inside the Paramount Theater. Ian is the most talented songwriter I have seen or even heard of in a long, long time. People (like, tattooed people) sat there and cried as he sang his songs. Just amazing.
I love the Two Man Gentlemen Band. From the constant sexual double entendres (usually dealing with kazoos, wetness, you get the picture), to the 1940's style cover of the "Ghostbusters Theme," these guys are the most fun act around. At an indoor show at 2pm, they had the crowd laughing, singing along, and even playing kazoos.
