The Mermaid Lounge
February 14, 2004
Everybody was just drunk enough when local Rock guitar and drums duo Blackfire Revelation came on to start a mosh pit. People stood tentatively at both sides while a group of six or seven guys got their aggression out. One girl even got in on the action late in the set.
It was great to see such a talented and intense band play in such an intimate place. If you like heavy music, you will like this band. Itís not Punk or Metal. Just probably the catchiest hard rock youíll hear this side of Foo Fighters or Queens of The Stone Age. It doesnít hurt that the drummer was theatrical, throwing his glasses against the wall and scanning the audience with his drum stick between snare hits.
My only problem with them was that they didnít play long enough, but I probably would have had them play all night. It was 2:20 a.m. before they finished their set. Good band. Good night.
