I had been looking forward to this show since finding out about it sometime in May. I first stumbled across a listing for Crescent Moon is in Big Trouble on the Triple Rock calendar. That alone was enough for me to add it to my calendar...then a couple weeks later I saw that Mel Gibson & the Pants had been added to the bill. OK then, so two of my favorite local bands are playing the same show at my favorite venue...I'm there. Then sometime in early June I was scrolling down the listings at the Triple Rock's site and noticed that CITY ON THE MAKE had been added to the show. Now, it's common that one or more bands that I like or at least appreciate end up playing the same show together but it's rather rare that a bill this solid (IMHO) comes along. Crescent Moon is in Big Trouble ended up playing first per their call, MG&TP second and City on the Make threw down at the end of the night.
