The Lighthouse and the Whaler (6/25/09)

This was actually the Ha Ha Tonka show at the Beachland Tavern, but I didn't stay long enough to see them. The Lighthouse and the Whaler is a Cleveland band and was the first performance. These guys are a gem for local music! Check out their MySpace and listen for yourself.

Their recorded stuff is great. Their live show could use a little more polishing on the harmonies, but still a great band to see. I'm excited to see what they can do going forward. They probably had the largest crowd of the night, and the most people I've seen for an opening act at the Beachland!

Next was Via Audio from Brooklyn, NYC. Meh. They were a little too over the top with the clangy, dancy, 80's sound. Too much irony going on there.

Not staying for Ha Ha Tonka was in no way a hit on their music, but it was just time to go home and mourn the death of Michael Jackson. Just kidding.
