We arrived just in time to see the Elevations setting up. And let me tell you, I was getting pissed off by how long they were taking. I could only guess by their name and the fact that they had a horn section and everyone was wearing suits that they were going to play a terrible murdering of Motown .
We arrived just in time to see the Elevations setting up. And let me tell you, I was getting pissed off by how long they were taking. I could only guess by their name and the fact that they had a horn section and everyone was wearing suits that they were going to play a terrible murdering of Motown funk-soul. And that was even before their corpse of a singer came on stage. Despite the fact that their trumpet player was the sleaziest looking man I have ever seen and their tenor sax player had a Kangol hat on backwards Sammy Jackson style (yes they deserve to die, and I hope they burn in hell!), I decided to give them a chance. And twenty seconds into their show, I was back at my original opinion. Besides being downtempo and sleep-inducing and ripping off bass lines from Otis Redding and Jimi Hendrix, I just could not stand looking at their lead singer. She had dark, baggy eyes, a sickly pallor about her face; overall, just Poe's wet dream of a woman. Well, disregarding that Poe had a penchant for the girl-childs. Blech. My favorite part was when they gave the Sammy wannabe solos and he rippped out some lines that were blatantly in the wrong key signature. I should know this; I play jazz tenor.
