I saw Rogue Wave at the Bowery Ballroom back on November 1. I'm reminded of the date because I'm horrendously sick right now and it all started after that concert. I should learn to dress more appropriately for the outside weather and not the indoors weather.
Anyway, Rogue Wave was my favorite band of Spring 2006, first started listening to them in 2003-2004 Rogue Wave put on a surprisingly entertaining show. To be honest, judging by the mellowness of their music, I didn't expect much out of watching them live. Also, I'm not the biggest fan of their new album, "Asleep at Heaven's Gate." But I was completely won over when Zach Rogue (the lead singer and guitarist) had us sing "California" acappella with him! He claimed that he hadn't performed the piece in a long time and would mess up the instrumentals. They played a long set, over two hours long. As expected, they covered most of their new album. But, they also brought back some old favorites from "Descended Like Vultures" and "Out of the Shadow." I was disappointed that they didn't perform "Love's Lost Guarantee" since it's one of my favorites, but "Kicking the Heart Out" almost made up for it.
If music is my lover, you are just a tease.
