One of these things is not like the other. Don't ask me why Looks Like Rain got asked to play this, but I'm glad we did because all the other bands were great. I never owned any of Engine Down's albums but I always enjoyed seeing them live. So tight and really interesting songs. I'm not sure if any of them are still making music. I hope so. The Future Perfect - first of all, great band name - I've mentioned them before on here. Cool band featuring former members of Blank and Bridgewater. The brothers Silanskis both played in the band. Any band with a family connection already has a leg up. There's a connection there that can't be denied. I don't think they ever recorded anything which is a bummer. I promised a friend I'd send him rips of the Ampersand demos and EP a while back and still haven't done so. I'll try to do that this week and post them here as well.
