Club Is Open Festival Night 3

Aminal – The Cave – July 9

An energy dip from the euphoric highs of Wednesday’s Players blowout was inevitable. But Club Is Open night three didn’t hurt for hard rocking performances. On The Beach an amalgamation of members of I Was Totally Destroying It with Nagendra Jayanty, who played with IWTDI’s John Booker in the band Strunken White, took the stage first. The band played with all the energy you’d expect from a band that doesn’t get to play often, laying down a solid set of post-punk. The Dry Heathens, always a force live, laid down one of the best sets I’ve seen from them. Loose and full of energy, the band roared as Daren Sink lived up to the band’s name, choking on romance and spitting out a vitriol of twisted and destroyed ideals. Taking the stage last, Aminal‘s hard-hitting, very Southern brand of rock was a big hit, erasing any question that the band could hold its own with a band as good as the Heathens. All in all, it was a fun night than ran smoothly. And while it might not have been as action packed as the night before, it was probably for the best. This way everyone will have energy for the two great nights to come.
