About This Gig

Divina Infusino in the Milwaukee Journal:

"The sound off The Palms nightclub stage Wednesday night collected the frayed edges of many types of music," she began. "The faded reflection of psychedelia, the emotionally outspoken attitude of punk, the melody and virtues of pop. None paused long enough to completely color U2's performance before a crowd of 500. Instead, the four-year-old quartet from Dublin entangled the loose musical threads into a liquid fabric of sound: one designed more from emotion than patterned musical styles."
