JET, at the Forum last nite...

Well I was one of those who stood at the front with their arms crossed, nearly a year ago in July, when Jet played at the Corner, like they had something to prove! Allot of hype at the time, not having even released a cd...
I was keen to see their progression last night at the Forum. The place was pretty full, especially the floor. I thought Jet played well, tight and the sound was pretty good, not overly loud. All the guys sing (except bass) so the mix up was good and kept it interesting.
The crowd loved the more popular tunes and the lesser known ones carried themselves too. If anything, I'd say that the venue was maybe to big. I mean, most people hadn't seen them b4 (maybe BDO) and I felt they got a little lost at times (maybe its a little inexperience), but the crowd was pretty responsive all the same. Good on em I say, I'd rate it as a success.
I thought the first band, Cannon, was ok.
The Stands (UK) I really liked. More my personal taste. Great 3-part harmonies, quite commercial (very Yardbirds/Beatles/Clear Water mixed into one). Bought their cd today!
Overall, well done JET for flyin the Aussie and most importantly, Melbourne Music Flag. Who gives a frigg the means you got to where you are (allot of hype, i-pod etc), the songs are good, catchy and most importantly, FUN...
Later.

Just posted a review of the Friday night show.
I was too tired to really get right into it but the crowd response was fantastic . Just like the BDO.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
