This was a private show for some guy's 40th birthday party. I got in by being friends of the opening band, Citizen X, one of the area's top party/cover bands. They got the party started with high energy covers from such diverse bands as Alice In Chains, Metallica, ZZ Top, Soundgarden, Lynyard Skynyard, Kid Rock, Ozzy, and Rage Against The Machine amongst others, plus a couple originals.
Then it was time for Skid Row. They haven't been quite the marquee band since the departure of Sebastian Bach about 15 years ago, but they always seem to be on tour. Current singer Johnny Solinger may not have quite the charisma of Bach in his prime, but he's as good of a singer as Bach ever was. Though they were on a tiny stage in front of maybe 150 people (Johnny joked he was going to pass the mike around so everyone could introduce themselves), the played with the energy and intensity of a packed arena. They stuck mostly to their hits with only a couple songs off their last album. I'm a much bigger fan of club shows over big, flashy arena shows, so seeing a band like Skid Row up close and personal was a real treat.
