Good Day At Hoodwink

Went to the Hoodwink Festival in NJ today. For those of you who don't know, Hoodwink is a little pre-show that leads up to Bamboozle Saturday and Sunday. Basically, it's a bunch of pretty popular bands covering other bands, and it's a lot of fun. Here were the highlights of the day for me.
1 Saves The Day
Played Almost All of Pinkerton


One hugely influential band covering another, this was absolutely the highlight of the night. The crowd knew every line, and the band was spot on. Even Chris' guitar tone was perfect. I was VERY lucky to see this .The best song they played was definitely The Good Life, and then they played At Your Funeral as an encore.
2 Say Anything
The Misfits


It was completely fitting that Max and company cover such an over the top band, because they ARE such an over the top band. The crowd loved every song these guys played too, and there were plenty of pits to show for it. So much fun to watch these guys, as always. Halloween and We Are 138 were probably the best songs they played.
3 Motion City Soundtrack
Nine Inch Nails (?)


I was completely blown away by this one. It was a completely unexpected choice, but these guys pulled it off FLAWLESSLY. I was extremely impressed by how much they actually sounded like NIN. They played Wish, March of the Pigs, Head Like A Hole, and even Hurt. All of them spot on. Pretty great, and very surprising.
4All Day Holiday
The Beach Boys


Never heard of these guys before this, but it was a lot of fun to watch them play, and they did a really great job with all the songs they played. Good Vibrations in particular was spot on. Great harmonies and great energy really got the crowd going.
5 Man With Beard
A Legend.


Perhaps the pinnacle of the night, I met epic beard man...a true American hero...with an epic beard. He drunkenly sang me songs about his friend "Travelin Bob", and went on a long and arduous journey to steal someone's blunt from the audience. He was a total manic...and my hero.
