ONE STEP CLOSER IN INDY



    The stage is set for Emergenza’s Indianapolis final. Over the past two weekends, over 35 of Indy’s best performed at Birdy’s during the semi-finals. The checklist includes just about anything you are apt to see during a live show: Tremendous bands, inebriated crowd members, on stage antics, inter-band drama, flashing breasts (both male and female). After the dust settled we found ourselves with 14 bands ready to have the show of their lives on June 18th at the Music Mill.             The 1947 California Cupcake Company, regardless of their ever-changing lineup, took the stage Thursday. They gave the room a solid set, featuring a crowd favorite dedicated to “a fat girl with a lot of heart.” Such tender and moving statements are typical of this band, just wacky enough to keep any room interested. Echoes provided another highlight that evening, closing the show with a set of mercurial songs that you can get lost in – in a good way.             Xero Sum found themselves as one of the bands playing for a chance to play at the legendary Metro in Chicago, and they earned it. Their tight rhythm section and powerful vocals (the source of which is a girl not even old enough to legally get inside the club) lured the crowd to their favor, sending them to the Music Mill. Joining them will the Adding to the Madness. This band features an oddity, a singing bass player who can actually do both things well. See the sight yourself in June. Also performing that night was Faceless, whose set left nothing to be desired.             In a town like Indianapolis, a band like Original State of Mind can often find themselves out of place. These guys, forming a sextet of hand drumming, keyboards, acoustic guitars, and soulful vocals, might have trouble fitting in here when their city’s music scene is build on hard rock. Doesn’t matter. You can’t turn your back from good music, and the guys from OSOM will win over a fan from any genre with their energy. Uncut, sharing the bill with OSOM that Saturday evening, isn’t lacking from energy either. Neither was the army of fans they brought with them. You can recognize them by the “UNCUT” written across the chests of a hundred people in the crowd.             Week 2 kicked off with 650 North, a four piece from Bloomington, IN featuring genuine kickass vocal harmony (a rarity these days it seems). Make sure you look out for their new disc available soon. Also delivering their second Emergenza set that night was The Dead See. It’s a bit annoying to hear the chatter of uninterested crowd members during a band’s set. I can assure you this doesn’t happen when The Dead See plays. Relentless, a metal band just crazy enough to make you nervous, shocked the crowd into submission Thursday night, sending them along with The Dead See to the Music Mill on June 18th. I’d be remiss if I did not mention another of Thursday’s highlights: Unusual Mix. Look hard and you might find a more polished group of musicians.             Our second Friday night at Birdy’s was apparently dubbed “Out of Town Band Night”, with Ston, Second Sun, and Sirface all hailing from 2 hours or more away from Indy. No matter, all three of these guys showed up with the crowd, delivering “killer” sets all. Also appearing that night was Ten Sins. This is a band comprised of four dedicated band members, all good at what they do. Together, they are even better.             Saturday night was Emergenza’s last show at Birdy’s until 2006. I think I might have seen the soundman shed a tear, but can’t be sure about this. The Weedz were fortunately there to cheer him up. The Weedz are just flat out kickass. Good songs, good guitar work, and personality out the yang. Make sure you see them when you get a chance. Joining The Weedz on stage that night was Fallen, a group that obviously worked hard to top their previous set, no easy feat. Aether Law ended the night and the weekend with a performance that left the crowd anticipating their next at the Music<
