Local H & Sullen 5/31/2003
Vintage Vinyl hosted a Thick Records' double header CD release instore with St. Louis' Sullen and alternative rock warriors Local H this past weekend. We ended up having over 150 people turn out (including members of the Foo Fighters) for the Saturday afternoon perfmance. This instore was set up months in advance which gave everyone sometime to be creative. The bands have toured together before so I knew that there was a comraderie among the bands so I suggested to the groups that rather than do the same thing at the instore that they would be doing at their show later that night why not do something unique. I made the suggestion that at the instore that the bands do 4 song sets of which 3 songs would consist of the other band's material and the bands both agreed to it. So, this past Saturday for the first time (and maybe ever) people were able to see Sullen play Local H songs and Local H play Sullen songs.
