So last night was the first preliminary rounds. I was the judge together with my bandmates in HIGH VOLTAGE and two distinguish bandmembers of PAPERFLY PURSUIT (oooohhh... they got a Flying V! Is it a GIBSON?). Nine bands performed that night. All I can say is UTP surely got talents!
There are few bands which I really really like and I already expressed that not only in the judgement sheets but also verbally after the performances where the judges are required to comment. I am not going to spoil the suspense though. You need to wait until tonight to know which bands are going to be qualified for the final on Saturday's night.
Which also comes to my mind, why I accepted to be the judge anyway? I mean, looking at the way of how the bands play, they could change the position with me anytime. They played a lot better than High Voltage! What do you expect from a band who practiced once a year?
So I would like to apologize in advance if we, the judges performed worse tonight than the bands that are competing. I am imagining an emergency scenery where one of us fainted on stage.
You probably should lower your expectations. Just consider us, High Voltage as an aging old jaded rocker lot who are trying to extend their rockers' dream.
As AC/DC put it correctly in 1976 (I was one-year old hahaha), It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock N Roll). It is still looking very long.

|Drum setting was nice.|
