Blixaboy/Farah at good records anniversary 4/18/09

These were the only 2 acts of the whole line-up for Good Records anniversary show that i wanted to see.  Glad we were able to catch 'em before we headed to Ft. Worth for another show.

I was a little late into Blixaboy's electrodub set, but what i saw was on point.  This was really good dub for a one man show and maybe the best solo shit i've ever heard from Wanz over the last ten years.  I've always thought if he concentrated on one genre he could really shine.  Maybe he should stick to dub.  What do i know, ya know?

Farah went on next around 6:15pm or so.  She played five songs well, including 'Law of Life' and 'Die'.  Wanz was playing the Johnny Jewel produced backing tracks from his laptop.  She was commanding him to stay at the helm for the duration of the set once there was the slightest of technical sound difficulties.  The chanteuse seemed a little out of it but i think that's normal for her on show nights.  Maybe it's just performance anxiety?  Either way her new haircut looked great.  Farah's voice sounded aurally pleasing and her exuberant dance moves are an added quality to her live performance.  I enjoyed seeing a few WTF looks on peoples faces during this set.  She is definitely underappreciated in Dallas.  I wonder what her shows in LA are like?
