MORE ROCK FOR YOUR BUCK$$$
By: Dee Miyamura
Welcome to the Key Club, boys and girls, now re-opened on the Sunset Strip in Beautiful Downtown Hollywood! Welcome to a Saturday night of Rock! February 6, 2010.
The night was clear of rain, thankfully, but still cold. Once again, this intrepid reporter headed out to rock her ass off!
Vicious Licks bounded onto the stage as I readied my spot to enjoy the show. I had previously seen this band in my own sleepy hometown in January, and was looking forward to this show.
Brett Hellings, RJ, Tchad Drats, Dave Cruise, and Dish, facing a more Warner Drive crowd, however; VL did not let that stop them for pulling out all their A-stuff. The guitarist on my left, dangerous and handling his guitar with abandonment. Nearly knocking over a monitor, and spilling several watery drinks!
Brett covered the stage and involved the crowd to the best of his abilities. Slowing unbuttoning his vest to the cat calls of several scattered in the room. He handled the AC/DC cover well, getting each note to shine.
Warner Drive jumped on stage after VL. Jonny, Elvis, Albert, Candice, and Jonny U. were definitely ready to rock our socks off! Getting us going with “Fully Loaded” and it was non-stop-Warner-Drive-frenzy from there on!
Jonny U, looking a little bit like the Muppet Animal, keeping the wild signature beat going! Albert proving that he is a “lead guitarist”. Elvis was the cool man on bass. Candice showing she can keep up with the big boys, and, by the way seem to be increasing the male population of WD’s audience!
Lead singer Jonny picked as the cover tune, Styx “Come Sail Away”, done in the Warner Drive hard rocking style. Before long, the set was over, the goodnights said and the stage went dark. What a night!
