The Mighty Robot and The Twisted Ones through there fourth annual "Brooklyn Rock Festival" on Saturday. This event was nice BBQ type event and was a [erfect way to end the summer. Nothing could possiblely been nicer than spending Labor day weekend outside listening to a great lineup of bands. The first band I saw was Fireball. Who played a nice set. They were an all female group that very much had a Sleater Kinney thing going on. Overall they definetly rocked, however the sound could have been turn up significantly. They also mentioned that they just recorded a cd and it would be out soon. I then watched Hospitals set from the bridge. You couldn't hear very well from this view point so i don't have much to say about them. Perhaps I will check them out the next time they play.

Fireball Example After there set I moved back done front to watch the there fianl acts of the afternoon. First up was the Ex-Models. I dig these guys sound however at times they get lost making noise and not focusing on song structure. In my opion there best songs are when they are both playing guitar.
Example
Nest up was
  • The Double
  • They kind of a modern Pink Floyd thing going that I really like. Their sound is very similar to The Secert Machines but a little less pop oriented. However they are still able to move from space rock to a "no wave" sound. You can listen to a few mp3 on their website.
    Example
    The last band of the day to play was Oneida. These guys are a great live band. They just tear it up everytime I see them. Oneida preforms a sort of prog, psychadelic rock that stays focoused with a heavy groove sound. The new album "The Wedding" is great and the track "High Life" is in my constant rotaion They are also playing Mercury Lounge on October 21.
    Oneida
    Over all it was a great day on music and fun. I can't wait for next years event.
