Total Score: 9.2/10

[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

Style: Rock / Psychedelic

Crowd: The Hideout was surprisingly busy for a Wednesday night. The crowd was buzzing, excited to see what Indie Week would have to offer this year. Being one of the first bands on the bill for the opening night of a week-long festival is a tough job and with a little delay, Frankie McQueen were ready to take on the task. People were grooving. The cover of “I Got Mine” got a storm of applause and made the band stay on stage for another song.

Technicalities: I’m not sure what happened, but it took them a while to set up. Later on in the evening I figured out that the schedule has been modified, so maybe they went onstage at the right time, but it wasn’t the time shown on the website.

Sex appeal: Three dudes rocking out on stage and giving it their all – I think that’s pretty sexy!

Memorable Moment: The improv piece in the middle of “I Got Mine”, hands down. The abstract guitar phrases driving on the main bass-line, gave the song new life. Frankie McQueen made it their own and nailed it.
