We caught the first two acts at Fort Reno last night, Diacritical and Jinxed at Twelve. We had to get the kids home before Gist started up. It was a beautiful night and I must say I enjoyed Jinxed at Twelve, even if they did have a bit of an Echo and the Bunnymen feel to them, as my wife pointed out.
Another odd fact was that they employed three guitars, one bass, and drums. I thought that was a bit of overkill on the guitar area, but their website didn't help me out any. It lists the singer as playing bass, and he was clearly playing a left-handed guitar strung upside down so he could play it right-handed (why bother, I say). The site also lists one member as a keyboardist/trombonist, neither of which was in evidence last night. So I'm assuming maybe the keyboardist/trombonist moved to bass and let the singer switch over to guitar. I don't know. I liked them, though.
Diacritical weren't bad. They had the misfortune to try out call and response lyrics on a crowd that wasn't large enough to overcome the PA even if they'd tried. It was a small early season Fort Reno crowd, and I'm not sure how well call and response ever goes over there -- people are busy eating picnic dinners and in general lounging on the grass.
