Despite his obvious disdain for the loud, boorish conversations that persisted through the entire show, Snyder carried himself professionally, playing for over an hour and a half and doing an encore—though it was short and perfunctory.

With the new age of kids permanently plugged into some type of electronic device that delivers both conversation and music, MC Lars understands where technology and music converge.

While the Thermals seemed fairly shocked to be receiving such an enthusiastic response from the D.C. crowd, it was no mystery to those present.

Dando, looking hobo-chic in a hoody, ratty vintage military-style jacket, and stocking cap pulled down over his eyes, seemed hesitant until a few songs in, when he asked for some help from the sound guy, saying, "I can't hear myself sing up here."

When he's playing, Kinsella is an expert at communicating his songs. When the music stopped, the distractions he invited ultimately led to an uneven show.

Buckner takes the stage, sitting very, very stage left. He reminds me of an old, wrinkly bunny rabbit, with his long, grey hair and beard and almost-always squinty eyes. But as soon as he opens his mouth to sing, I decide I have no more room to talk; this man is amazing.

On the last legs of their Cabin Fever tour, the "we don't need no stinkin' percussion" quartet brought a mix of old, new, and borrowed bluegrass to a sticky, smoky (and sometimes both) Pageant.

In my life, I cannot remember seeing that many moms and dads at one show. One mother spent her time inside the Creepy head in hand, in slumber.

It makes sense Blue October has such a diverse fan base, as their music ranges from the alt-rock sensibilities of "Razor Blade," to lovely confessional ballads like "Blue Sunshine," to melodic pop like "Calling You," to the techno of "X Amount of Words."

Lead singer Brian's perfectly styled blonde hair and pretty-boy face may have garnered the attention of countless 15-year-old girls in attendance, but his near-perfect vocals and the entire band's excellent stage presence definitely helped build a place in their memory to take Daddy's debit card to the nearest record store.

Their music wavers between '60s pop, waltz, and the Sundays-drenched melodies. Their influences are as diverse as the alt-country proclivities of M Ward to '50s icons Connie Francis and Elvis.

I know this band has talent and potential, but on this night, they let me down. The only thing that gave me comfort was that Vega4 is now on my radar.

As for Jonathan Cour, I have two words about him and his band: Radio. Ready.

Their well-known hits—particularly "Californication," "Other Side," and "Give It Away"—were very enthusiastically received, and most of the crowd would have gladly stayed for more at the end of the night.

Closing song "Seven Words," one of the band's first hits, left the crowd wanting more.

Auerbach's grasping, grainy voice is the stuff that spans generations, and its appeal was never more apparent than on the "Just Got to Be" chorus.
