WHAT: THE MAX J VARIETY SHOW
WHERE: CHAMELEON CLUB – LIZARD LOUNGE – LANCASTER, PA
WHEN: DEC. 6TH 2011
TSI has been hearing more and more about THE MAX J VARIETY SHOW and was FINALLY able to make it out! Last nights show was there “First Anniversary Extravaganza” and it was KILLER! A night of fun hosted by Max J & Friends was full of a “variety” of acts including Max J talks on the couch, hilarious video and photo slides, comedy and a full night of great live bands!
The live acts started with the cool indie rock sounds of the HOUSECATS, followed by the usually acoustic but first time electric and vox of MIKE MCMONAGLE. Next up, one of TSI’s favs from this past summer, THE GALT LINE. Being their second time out to play the Max J show, you could tell that some of the crowd was obviously ready for ‘em, but all the others found themselves picking there jaws up off of the ground by the middle of the very first song! Blythe Crawford is the front of this band with crazy wailing vocals, a uke and hundreds of bottle caps strapped to her legs for percussion. Backed by Willie Gammell who totally RIPS IT on guitar, this absolutely killer duo from DC completely blew the top off of the Lizard Lounge with there Old School Gritty Americana Rock sound! With a tough act to follow, Mike Kuhn, Luke Leidy, and Terry Sheetz (T.) hit the stage to lay down the Piano Driven Metal sounds of METALLICAN’T! They don’t come out to often, but when they do, this is a MUST SEE for any old school Metallica Fan!
