This wonderful night began with a small pre-show party at Stephen’s, 99ers lead guitar/singer, house.
Upon arriving I encountered a talkative feline princess who announced my arrival to the house. I had some great food. discussed with the others topics such as:
– which member will control what part of the world
– which instrument will be “The One?”
– which 99ers song is to be the planet’s anthem?
*my vote is Godzilla’s A Punk😁*
It was time to journey back to Mpls and arrive at 7th St. Entry.
The Silverteens began with a very high energy celebration that got everyone in the mood for the greatness ahead.
Cue Ripper, a band of heightened punk appeal with energy to spare for the entire room. Intricate guitar solos compete with machine-gun drumming in the supernova these punks ignited. I’ve enjoyed Ripper mainly for the intensity they bring onstage. They Rock really hard and they’re Great!
Onto the 99ers!
The 99ers brought their trademark energy & attitude of pure happiness to the album release thus making this performance one for the record books. Chris Schoonover is being epic and acknowledging me, the surly fan shoving a phone near his face to get the perfect ending image.
Job well done 99ers! I’ll most certainly see you at many, MANY more of your shows.
Thank you and Good Night!
