The Elephants, The Turn Ons at Hell’s Kitchen

Hell's Kitchen CrowdI posted some new photos to the photos gallery. These are shots from Hell’s Kitchen on Saturday. I decided to hit a free show last weekend. Seemed like a totally different crowd for the Hell’s Kitchen. Usually, it’s metal as all get out. There were four bands that played. I missed the first band, Friskey, but cought the others. Paris Spleen was a local group. Meh…They’ve got a ways to go to develop a real sound of their own. Next was The Turn Ons (photos) from Seattle, who started off softly but eventually got the kids shakin’. Incidentally, they should get an award for the most pretentious “I’m a rocker” move I’ve seen in a while. Dude actualy put down the guitar and pulled out some leather gloves and put them on — as part of the show. Wow. Wowee-wow-wow. Last up was The Elephants (photos) from Tacoma. They played catchy pop tunes, but switched up instruments about 42 times which was distracting to me. The crowd didn’t seem to care.


  1. We really enjoyed that night, especially since it was one of the last times we got to see the Elephants before their (lamentable) breakup.

    I wouldn’t have thought the leather glove move Trav did would have come off as pretentious. We all thought it was rather absurd/funny. Dark humor, I suppose, since the song he did it on is about murder.

    Anyhow, nice photos. They brought back fond memories of that show.

  2. Yeah, I probably took it out of context since I wasn’t familiar with the band. I had a good time at the show, and I liked the band. It just really seemed kinda ridiculous to me at the time.
