It was a dark and stormy night in Gainesville. The trees were whisping in the wind. There was a cool air blowing through the Florida humidity. You could smell the REHASHER in the air. How was that intro? I want to make this the worst, most campy show review on punknews.org ever. Eddie C's is...

It was a dark and stormy night in Gainesville. The trees were whisping in the wind. There was a cool air blowing through the Florida humidity. You could smell the REHASHER in the air.

How was that intro? I want to make this the worst, most campy show review on punknews.org ever.

Eddie C's is the coolest bar in Gainesville. Only the hippest of the hip are allowed entrance and a dress code is enforced. There was a line around the corner of the building just to catch a glimpse of the rock and roll celebrities inside.

Everyone from Jenna Jameson to Steve Brown (Duncan Yo-Yo World Champion) to Pauly Shore were in attendance at the galla.

Whole Wheat Bread were playing when I finally was allowed into the club. They are a three piece band from Jacksonville and they are quite nifty, to use a bit of slang. Throwing around ballsy guitar riffs and jokes about black heritage ("we're also known as black 182"), the afro-american trio actually had the audience chanting "I LOVE BLACK PEOPLE" It was magical.

Next was One Pump Chump. Unfortunately, my shoe became untied and I was forced to miss their whole set.

Then the glitz and glamor that is Rehasher took the stage by storm. It was like standing up against the wall of a pier and having waves crashing against you. Roger was sporting a crushed velvet top hat and Ryan had on his standard turquoise sequined vest. Behind that veil of flashiness though was a band that just wanted to get their message out. They were succesful in their mission. Jake, despite being tone deaf, rocked the drums as he sang lead vocals for a cover of Cindy Lauper's "I don't want to hear it, please" Gui was bling blingin' as he electrified the stage, although his between song banter about a "mystical magic orb" was slightly disorienting.

If you are intrigued by toaster ovens or the musical stylings of Henry Rollins' spoken word releases, then Rehasher is the band for you.
