Roxx Action + Rock Stovrie + Vains Of Jenna concert review
First band started out 10 minutes after opening hour for half an hour full of warming-up sleazy action.
Though the technical level of the band still receives some comments, I think they showed us some growth since their first gig, a few weeks ago!
We got to hear 8 own songs and 1 cover, Kickstart my Heart from Mötley Crüe.
For all the reactions I heard after the gig, everybody was very well entertained by the looks and Attitude of Roxx Action!
Next up was Rock Stovrie, a local cover band with a specially adapted set for the evening.
Tons of 80s-style covers, flirting with heavy metal as well as hard rock and anything in between.
The set was amusing to say the least, but didn't get anybody into the vibe as the Stovrie themselves clearly were.
It didn't stop them in having the most fun they could, but a little more drinks inside the people could have provided a completely different crowd.
Finally, the band everyone was waiting for (anxiously I dare say, due to the recent line-up change): Vains Of Jenna.
"Not a second to waste", must have been what the new singer Jesse was thinking, as he immediately started crowd control to warm up an otherwise mellow pack of people.
Reading shirts, bumping fists, shaking hands, calling everyone up closer: he didn't give in and it paid in the end.
A rollercoaster set of new songs, previously-unheard songs and a few old ones hit us all square in the face and made us all but forget about Lizzy.
Jesse delivers the same old stuff with a new enthusiasm, and could take on Lizzy any day (except for Enemy In Me, which needed Lizzy's gritty style to top it all off, but that's just me).
The big Lizzy-less panic was completely unfounded, what we saw was a new and improved Vains Of Jenna, and even though I'll miss Lizzy's vocals, Jesse does an equally great job and deserves every bit of support possible.
And last but not least, let's not forget the great job the second guitarist did (even though I didn't quite catch his name, kudos to him!).
The boys were nice enough to have some shake-and-sign after the show, proving that rock n' roll isn't all about the high-and-mighty feel and how to exploit it. I'm looking forward to the day they pass by again!
