Hopefully your Memorial Day weekend hangover has subsided by now...but if you're still racking your brains to recall how you spent your long weekend, well, Observer intern Spencer Campbell's here for the jogging. Check out his weekend video round-up after the jump.
The Maine, Forever the Sickest Kids and The Cab at House of Blues These three played together at the HOB last Saturday night (photos), and since they are basically carbon copies of each other, we thought we’d mention them in the same breath. These pop rock assembles seem to be on the way up, though, with Forever the Sickest Kids going on Conan O’Brien on June 12, The Maine opening for Good Charlotte and Boys Like Girls on the upcoming The Soundtrack of Your Summer Tour, and The Cab’s debut album, Whisper War, seemingly garnering some positive reviews.
Guy Forsyth at the Granada Theater The Granada was a perfect venue for Austin's Guy Forsyth last Friday night; the intimate setting allowed him to be heard, and Forsyth’s lyrics on growing up in American pop culture are most of the fun.
The Police at Superpages.com Center The Police hadn’t played in Dallas for 25 years until last June. Sting and the gang must’ve liked the changes a quarter-century brought the city, though, 'cause they returned less than a year after that June concert, playing last Wednesday at the Superpages.com Center.
...and now I can’t get Sting’s falsetto squeal out my mind. --Spencer Campbell
