Yesterday, Office, The Pop Project and Johnny Headband played at Small's. Johnny Headband hadn't played in ages, so there was a kind of Welcome Back atmosphere. I've never seen Office, but love their stuff. I was not disappointed by their live show, and felt myself geeking out at the back of the room, singing along softly. Therefore, I forgot to get pictures. Sorry.
I haven't seen the Pop Project in awhile, so it was nice to have them back, and with new songs to boot! #fire I did get pictures of those guys.
I really, really liked Johnny Headband. A fun, interactive performance and this kind of can't-take-your-eyes-off-them charisma that is born not made. I didn't know a single song they played (I was vastly outnumbered by big fans and friends, though) and I still had an amazing time. The latest incarnation of the band is Chad and Keith Thompson, drummer RGS and Panic! from Pas/Cal and it's something you want to see, fo sho. Enough of my praise, here's some pics!
