Went to the first day of Noise Pop last night at Bimbos. After getting our tickets and downing a few around the corner at La Roccas we headed in to see how things were stacking up. We missed the first band but were told that we really didn’t miss much. The next band was Velveteen which was a surprise because they now have a bass player and they sounded great, if not a little childish when talking between songs. We decided to stay in the lounge and listen to Trackstar play and we caught up with our friend Mike Spears who also has a pass for all the shows. When it came time for Malcamus I was a bit underwelmed. I think he has a great voice but can over do it when it comes to arranging. I think he needs to get away from the idea that his voice needs to follow the music melody exactly and vice versa. Next stop the Librarians at Bottom of the Hill.
