Live at Lakeview: Week 6
One Track Mind from Truckee opens at Live at Lakeview.
Correction: In last week’s wrap-up, we mistakenly confused this week’s opener, One Track Mind, with a band of the same name from Massachusetts. The One Track Mind that played last week is from Truckee. My apologies to the band.
I have to say, I’m fairly happy that One Track Mind from Massachusetts wasn’t the opener last week. I couldn’t figure out why we’d booked a heavy metal cover band to open for a latin fusion band. Turns out, we didn’t. One Track Mind from Truckee is a rock-n-roll cover band that covers some of my favorites (like the White Stripes) along with other gems. They focus on blues, rock, reggae and punk and they were an awesome time! The front woman has great stage presence and the entire set was not only fun to photograph but fun to listen to.
One Track Mind.
40 Watt Hype closed out the night with their special blend of hip-hop, R&B, and latin fusion. On the more Latin inspired tunes, Live at Lakeview had a salsa dancer out in the crowd leading the charge and my boyfriend and I were thrilled to show of some of the moves we learned in LTCC’s ballroom dance class!
40 Watt Hype had the crowd doing the rhumba!
This week’s opener is The Weekenders, a bluesy rock’n’roll band from Salt Lake City that also embraces fuzz, groove and soul. They’ll be followed by rock band Congress, who will return to Live at Lakeview for the second year in a row. Originally from Virginia, Congress now calls Denver, CO home and I’m sure that we can expect just as awesome of a show as they gave us last summer, with a slew of original music peppered with classic rock covers.
