Overall the show was a great success. Luna's Lament proved why they are one of Charlotte's top bands, while Modena owned the stage with their own swagger, giving fans a glimpse of a few songs off of their new album. Both bands played high velocity songs that kept the crowd alive. Third on the list was The Tempered Machine. This was their "reunion" show, and it was pretty amazing. It was said they hadn't performed together in over 2 years, but it fely like they hadn't missed a beat. The drummer played a tiny Ludwig bop kit that produced a huge sound, while the bass player kept the crowd involved throughout the set. They were a great mix of Alternative hard rock mixed with some slower, bluesy tunes. The etherial sounds of Fields of Mars toned the show down a bit, but the the lead guitar and bass work really kept those guys tight.
I would definelty suggest goping to see all of these bands again. It was a great show, and I wasn't let down at all. For $5 it was totally worh my night.
