Knight School, Dream Diary and Fluffy Lumbers @ Bruar Falls, 9/7/09

Although my continuing obsession with arriving everywhere fashionably late (not to mention that I decided to walk, for some reason) I of course missed the Labor Day burgers personally grilled with love by Mike Balla, I thankfully didn't manage to miss any of the bands.

Knight School is an enthusiastic bunch with a pogo-stick tempo surfacing every once in a while, and the occasional practiced boy/girl harmony adding welcome texture. I caught a Flaming Lips-type vibe at a couple of moments.

Dream Diary, especially, was a pleasant surprise, their hooks standing out as a cut above most of the lo-fi bands distorting their hearts out these days. Fans of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart should take note.

Dude! Nic did not make the burgers. Those were 100 percent Chris Balla burgers.
