Off we went, down the street to the Abbey this past Saturday to see
Doggfight US, The Throwaways, Refuse Resist and The New Alibis……we caught
the New Alibis…Jesse Meyers' new band…very very good…
Man, if ever there was a awesome, powerful, succinct, killer drummer in town it is Jesse…..
I think family life and dad-dom is doing him very very well. He was just plain
stellar this night.
The band is made of a excellent musicians, the only complaint from my music officiando friend was that all the songs sounded too much alike, I will agree with that. Otherwise though, they were great so make sure to catch The New Alibis on their next gig!!...
