After watching illScarlett and Protest The Hero play their early sets at the Koolhaus, I made my way up to Rancho Relaxo to hang out with friends and listen to whatever Dan Wolovick, organizer for the TWM showcase series, had in store for us.

The Schomberg Fair

I saw The Schomberg Fair play last October at Rancho Relaxo, and in that review I described them as playing a sort of western-style folk country southern rock with an edge. Everything I said then still holds true now, and so once again I had a good time hanging out with friends while Matt (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Nate (bass, vocals), and Jake (drums) played the soundtrack for our late night drinking.

The Stables

The Stables are a three piece that consist of a guitar, a bucket-hockey-stick-string contraption for a bass, and collection of things to bang on for a drum kit. The three members trade spots, most likely to avoid having to fight over the real instrument (the guitar). Actually, now that I think about it, it's probably the bucket-hockey-stick thing that is most likely to be fought over. And to be fair, the drum kit did include one real drum. If I had closed my eyes, I may not have guessed they were playing such wacky instruments.

B.A. Johnston

B.A. Johnston puts on a pretty unique show, regularly running into the crowd, lying on the floor, all while wearing a fake straw boater hat with the $1.99 price tag still affixed.
