Outlaw Jam -- Frederick, MD -- July 31st, 2011
I went up to see KIX at OUTLAW JAM up in Frederick, MD with my buddy and his dad and cousin. A lighter show...
I got a GA ticket at the gate (well a scalper) for $30.
I got there early and caught the last half of Black Stone Cherry. I don't recall exactly what they played (except for one song) but they sounded better than I expected. The stage was pretty big and the sound was pretty clear and LOUD as a mother.
Edgar Winter Group came on and I enjoyed about half of the songs. Half were good rockin' tracks, then about half the rest was a bit too funky for what I was in the mood for that day. He sounded good, even if I was not very familiar with anything beyond 'Frankenstein.'
Kix (I think I see them too much) came on and were great (as always). No real change ups for the set, tho, which was a bit disappointing. Steve and the boys sounded great as always, but could have appreciated a different song or 2 thrown in, especially for the hometown audience.
Still it was easily worth the price of admission for Kix alone. I thought Edgar Winter was decent, and need to look more into Black Stone Cherry.
We left, and heard a little of the Nighthawks, Elvin Bishop, and Brian Setzer in the parking lot. I had little interest in seeing any of them and also wondered who booked the show.
I had heard the previous day (Motley Crue and Poison and New York Dolls) had about 24K gate. This day had about 8K...
