RALLY IN THE ALLEY



It was another fantastic weekend of rock at the 5 Spot in Old City Philly. THE POOR REBELS started out Thursday night by showing everyone what happens when you throw a classically trained drummer in the middle of a heavy metal band. The lead singer in THE GAIN OF ANOTHER LOSS didn''t let his sweat drenched armpits hold him back when he jumped into the crowd with the wireless mic to get everyone in the audience involved. THE CONVERTED came through with a raw old-school punk sound supported by 5 amazing vocalists. THE DEFOG used a moog & wurlitzer combination along with some beautiful vocal work by Chuck, the lead vocalist. NEXT STOP EARTH took us into the stratosphere, and SUBLIMINAL ORPHANS brought us back down to earth, and even furthur into the underground sound of their live instrumentated hip-hop. The crowd was so enveloped by their sex machine breakdown that instead of announcing the winners, the DJ threw on some dancehall, and the 5 Spot turned into a full on reggae dance party. 1 day later, the band 2 DAYS LATER started off the night by breaking a string, but kept on keepin'' on, and finished out their set. DEVIOUS CURE encompassed everything that this EMERGENZA FESTIVAL is all about. They came out to rock the crowd, and did just that, ending one song by saying "it''s tough gettin'' heard around here, we appreciate you listening." That was followed by some rediculous PA speaker acrobatics, and enough votes to push them on to the 2nd round at NORTH STAR. POWER TRANSISTOR, a 3 piece power rock group, had a drummer so big the 6 piece MAPEX kit looked like a Fisher-Price drumset. The single guitarist sounded like 2, using a loop station to fill in the rhythm while he picked out the solos. ONE FROM YOURSELF went on next with some melodic punk rock, and were followed by a super-bluesy band called MISPLACED RELIX. WITH IMMORTALITY closed out the night with the hardest hitting performance of the night, and the most intense fans to back them up. Saturday night opened up with the youngest band of the weekend, LAFFOUT587. It was their CD release party, and they did not disappoint. TONGUE-N-GROOVE got the crowd moving, with their in unison guitar swinging, and school bell cymbal drum solos. JULIET had a very progressive sound combined with great vocals and stage presence, and DEFIANCE ROAD had a ultra hard-hitting sound that''s sure to get them far. The ERNEST GOODLIFE BAND slowed things down a touch with great vocal harmonies, and rootsy mellow rock, and COILED graced the stage with not 1, but 2 Velvet Revolver t-shirts, and an outstanding 25 minute set. REBEL SAINTS closed out the night with a bang, sending everyone home from Bank St. with a smile on their face, and a warm feeling in their stomach. The final day of the weekend started off with PHILADELPHIA DESIGN. Using a hype-man drummer to get the crowd going, they closed out their sax-filled set with an old-school back-to-back bandana jam outro. With one of their very first public performances, KELLY DRIVE rocked the EMERGENZA stage, and are sure to have something in store for us at the NORTH STAR. P.I.K.E. hit the 5 Spot with a rock hammer, and CONDEMNED TO SUFFER''s lead singer celebrate his 21st birthday by ripping the 5 Spot apart with his ode to the sandwich weight loss king, "Subway Doesn''t Do Jared Justice." Mouth of Wilson closed out this amazing weekend at the 5 Spot by summing up the feeling of everyone in the audience... "With us we share with you." I''ll leave you all to ruminate on that for a spell.
