Having just finished the Mississippi Coast Coliseum’s brand new convention center a group of local bands decided it was perfect timing to break it in and blow the roof off. Fosterpalooza ‘09 was headlined by: 12 Stones (based out of Mandeville, LA and signed to Wind Up Records) and Egypt Central (based out of Memphis, TN and signed to Fat Lady Music). Warming up the stage and audience, excellently so, were: Falls From Grace, Touching the Absolute, Jane Doe’s Dead and added last minute to the lineup Wake the Light.

From start to finish the show was full of energy. As it should be the show’s energy seemed to flow and build as the night continued. Despite the convention center not being acoustically friendly to music the audience didn’t mind. By the time 12 Stones had step foot on stage the crowd was potently spirited with each bands musical performance as well as stage antics. After seeing revved up performances from local favorites such as Falls From Grace’s Tony Burn’s signature entrance wearing a gas mask and, paired with amateur pyrotechnics and Jane Doe’s Dead’s ability to produce rowdy dedicated fans; how could the audience not be salivating for more?

Egypt Central had the crowd and WCPR’s Special K singing along with the successful “You Make Me Sick”. Front man John T. Falls entertained the venue not only with his vocals and visual performance, but also with his sense of humor. Their performance only left the audience wet for more.

Paul McCoy, being the front man that he is, couldn’t help but deliver the icing on the cake during 12 Stones’ set. From their entrance and throughout the rest of their performance 12 Stones delivered an energetic and musically pleasing show.

Falls From Grace will be hosting their release party for Pleasure and Pain tonight at Nate’s Sports Bar and Grill on Hwy 49 in Gulfport. If for some reason you can’t make this show, be sure to pick up their cd from CD Baby. Also playing tonight are Jane Doe’s Dead and Pandemic. It’s three great bands for only $5 bucks, so check it out. It’s nice to see a local band have their CD release party locally.

Gina Turner and Anthony Ainsworth at the Julep Room

Here are some pictures I took at the Julep Room at the beginning of this month. I had the pleasure of watching Gina Turner and Anthony Ainsworth perform this night. Andrea Rodgers even stopped by to celebrate her birthday so I had to snap a few shots.

Check out the pictures. It was a great night.
