February 22, 2000: Althea, River City High, Boom Boom Cats @ Ottobar, Baltimore, MD
I went to this show to see River City High. I'd never heard of Althea before but they were great. I picked up their EP. Still have it, but haven't listened to it in a while. Real catchy indie/pop/punk. I'll have to dig it out and post it. I have no idea if any of them went on to do any other bands. I'm not sure if I watched Boom Boom Cats. There were a rockabilly band with punk rock roots, but not punkabilly, from the area. I didn't know any of them at the time but I currently work with their bass player, Lee Verzosa. He's a tattoo artist at Ghost Town in Ellicott City and does the label for Stillwater Artisinal Ales. He recently did the artwork for a Pulling Teeth shirt as well. Great dude.
