Live at Lakeview: week 7 wrap-up
Correction: In last week’s wrap-up, we mistakenly confused this week’s opener, One Track Mind, with a band of the same name from Massachusetts. The One Track Mind that played last week is from Truckee. My apologies to the band.
I have to say, I’m fairly happy that One Track Mind from Massachusetts wasn’t the opener last week. I couldn’t figure out why they had booked a heavy metal cover band to open for a latin fusion band. Turns out, they didn’t! One Track Mind from Truckee is a rock-n-roll cover band that covers some of my favorites (like the White Stripes) along with other gems. They focus on blues, rock, reggae and punk and they were an awesome time! The front woman has great stage presence and the entire set was not only fun to photograph but fun to listen to.
40 Watt Hype closed out the night with their special blend of hip-hop, R&B, and latin fusion. On the more Latin inspired tunes, Live at Lakeview had a salsa dancer out in the crowd leading the charge and my boyfriend and I were thrilled to show of some of the moves we learned in LTCC’s ballroom dance class!
