Seven Minute Silence, 4/4/2009

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I was in a band with Seven Minute Silence's lead singer John Ingles. Fast-forward ten years, I was in the audience at Seven Minute Silence's first official gig at Friar Tuck's in Pomona. The bar itself looks like a castle from the outside, and that's pretty cool. Anyhow...

The band's performance was delayed about an hour and a half, due to technical issues, and the lead vocals weren't loud enough in the PA system (virtually quiet, really) during their first song. The next four songs of their five-song set had a better mix in the PA. All in all, the show was awesome.

The three songs posted on their MySpace were played during the show, as well as two other songs. Meet the band:

(L to R): drummer Nick Bidart, vocalist/guitarist John Ingles, and bassist Miguel Caraballo.

(L to R): Guitarist/backup vocalist Matt Bidart and drummer Nick Bidart

There were three or four other bands after Seven Minute Silence, but I had to leave due to my busy schedule (geez, it's a Saturday night!). I hope the rest of the show went well. The next time they're in my neck of the woods, I'm definitely going to see them again. Here's to Seven Minute Silence!
