ok. Desa. Desa. Desa. One word: AWESOME! Their whole set, minus the tangle-ing mess that occured was fucking amazing. I have seen them once before and heard their mp3s and I fell in love with them. I was a big Link Eighty fan and I think a lot of people think that Desa was going to be another Link Eighty but it isn`t. They are two totally different sounds and I absloutly love both of them. Their whole set was just amazing and so much energy. It is very clear these boys know how to put on a show. I liked how their singer and guitarist traded vocal parts during the song and Ryan took the guitar, that was awesome. You can`t help but notice the amount of energy the band puts forth in their show. I would have liked them to play a bit longer but sadly it didn`t happen. I just feel like they didn`t play long enough. I bought their demo and it was fucking amazing as well, even with the less then perfect sound quality. It always makes me happy when bands mention how other bands played well, as Desa did. It just lets the crowd know they appreciate the other bands performances. They made a joke about how every new shopping center has a starbucks, which got me thinkin.. Where I live now, there is a shopping center, which is very new, and it has two Starbucks. One in the Albertsons and one across the parking lot. Whoever started Starbucks must be a genious because that shit cought on fast. But back to Desa, they are amazing and I definetly recommend you try to catch a show or download some mp3`s. I promise you wont be let down. I can`t wait to see them again! Desa just plain rocked. 5 out of 5- no question about it.
The last time I was at the Vibe Mel and I hated it. But this time was very different. They weren`t assholes and they didn`t make you pay for bringin in food. I went and got tons of taco bell for us and I was fearing them making me pay for bringing in food, but alas they didn`t. The only thing that I guss I could "rant" about was the fact that once the show was over it was almost immedietly that the kids running it asked everyone to pack up and hurry up when it takes time to get your things together and kids were still buying merch. But other then that I had a good time and the whole show was awesome. No bloody people and no asshole. Clean and straight rock n roll.
