Captured Live at the Northside Festival: Dinosaur Feathers live at Spike Hill


Justin Little, June 16, 2012
Next set I caught was Dinosaur Feathers at Spike Hill. I hate to bash any band but there were negatives to this set. So the songs were good. The drummer was really good. The lead singer/guitarist did his thing. During the main part of the song the bass was good but you left me asking myself the question “What the fuck is he doing?” quite a few times. I don’t know if it was to try and give the song a grunge feel or what. But I just didn’t get it. It sounded like at points of the song he was hitting the bass to make some kind of weird ambient sound. I’d say drop the weird unnecessary bass banging/noises or whatever you want to call them and keep it simple. Good set but I must admit there were a few awkward moments. Sorry guys, feel free to invite me to one of your sets and change my mind.

  1. oh man, heeeell naw, these guys totally ruled. I just happened to randomly walk into this show knowing nothing about this band and I was totally blown away. the bass work is absolutely my favorite part about these guys… looked like he was playing his bass through a guitar and bass amp in parallel, really interesting stuff.

      Interesting stuff is one way to put it. When they got going it was good. Some of the sounds coming out of that base reminded me of someone with Tourette Syndrome screaming out obscenities though. This is only my opinion, I’m glad you came by and said what you thought. The way you relate to music may be completely different than mine. Which is always a good recipe for some good conversation.
