So on Friday, November 12th, 2010 we played a stinky little dive called Fitzgerald’s in Huntington Beach. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not disparaging Fitzgerald’s. At least they have the cajones to feature unknown original bands on weekend nights. Live bands, Original Music! Holy Crap, Really?
Hey, I still have kids under 18, so I use terms like “crap” and “cajones” if you don’t like it, blow.
The camera sucked, the lighting was bad, but neither was as bad as the sound, so here you go:
Friday, Nov. 12th, 2010 – Huntington Beach
The Whistleblowers took the stage on Friday night at Fitzgerald’s in Huntington Beach. Sharing the bill were “Doggy Style” and “The Outsiders”. Here is the Whistleblowers version of the Woody Guthrie classic – “Blood of the Lamb”.
Huntington Beach, CA – The Strangers performed at Fitzgerald’s in Huntington Beach on a warm Saturday night, opening for No Crisis and The Crowd. The half-hour set was exciting and well received. Veteran punk rocker Rob Milucky heads up the band on guitar. Front man David Stucken handles lead vocals and the rhythm section is comprised of Shane Haddock on bass and Julian Kelly on drums.
The clip below is a song called Saint Marys. I applaud Fitzgerald’s for having the cajones to feature bands like the Strangers, however like other clubs of this ilk, sound and lighting can be a challenge. The band was tight, the set was consistent and the performance was passionately energetic.
Watch for these guys because their star is on the rise.
