Last Saturday the MIC held their “welcome back” show to students and the public. The club decided to go with an indie style show and booked some really good bands. Brave Birds started off the show; the three piece band warmed up the crowd with some belting sounds, along with some intense guitar riffs. Then came on Pity Sex, who are signed to the label Run for Cover records. Both bands hail from Ann Arbor, Michigan. The next band up was Take One Car, hailing from none other than Upstate New York, Dover Plains to be exact. This four piece of awesome guys lit up the crowd with a heavier indie sound. I actually got a chance to sit and talk with Tyler, the vocalist, and Pete, who plays lead guitar. This show was on an off day for them and they were able to come down from Syracuse and enjoy it with us. It was their first time at Oneonta and they loved the campus, filling up on Mills Dining Hall before the show. They are currently unsigned but I think if more people checked them out that could change. You can pick up their album “It’s Going to Be a Nice Day” from their Big Cartel store. Last, but certainly not least, was The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die. Instantly everyone moved up and rocked out to the intense sounds coming from this band. The atmospheric emo/indie rock band from Willimantic, Connecticut is currently signed to Top-Shelf Records. The audience could just feel the emotion coming from the band with every wail and guitar riff. You can also pick up their album from their Big Cartel store. All in all, the show was a great time on an early Saturday evening. The doors opened at six and the show ran till roughly 9:15. I’m definitely sure that this will not be the last time we see some of these bands at shows back here on campus.
