First Avenue Bootlegs Review and Photos coming

By the time the Xboys hit the stage in the First Avenue Mainroom, the event which kicked off with the Mood Swings spot on time at 8PM, had become as much a party as a show.

Early highlights included a beautiful set from Jessy Greene. Later the Jayhawks gave us all warm fuzzies, and Mike Watt teamed up with Golden Smog to bring the spirit of Iggy and the Stooges into the house (as if it had ever really left.)

Photos will be going up piecemeal throughout the day, so watch the photo blog and the HowWasTheShow Bootlegs Photo Set. (I shot a full gigabyte last night, 375 pictures in all, so the editing process is going to take a while longer than usual. With band after band in both the Entry and First Avenue going at the same time, this was no normal show.)

Also coming soon are a full review by Andrea Myers and more photos from Steve Cohen.

Oh, and this just in. A Flickr Photo Set from Chris Warren. And another from Andrea Myers.

Wish I could have been there... Judging from the pictures on Flickr, looks like I missed a great event.

Looking forward to the full story...

Prince didn't show up, huh?!

I uploaded my own photos as well. They turned out surprisingly well, despite the fact that they were taken on a Canon Powershot.

Thanks, Andrea. I linked to it from the post. Anyone else have a photo set from "last night's party?"

And Steve Cohen's photos are now up here.
