I love a good cover band any day but this wasn’t one.
Totally Inappropriate played two 45-minute sets for the Saturday night bar crowd that got better for those smart enough to keep drinking during the break. Songs like Hey Jealousy, I Don’t Wanna Be were ripped through with abandon – enthusiasm being the only thing this band had going for them.
The bass and drums were too loud, the singer’s voice was drowned out and still terrible (either he couldn’t sing or couldn’t hear himself but the bottom line was painful). Tom Petty got two nods, the Black Crowes and some Red Hot Chili Peppers found themselves on the set.
As a weird sidenote, the lead singer was kind of vulgar with his between song banter. Something about screwing “with your clothes on” and similar such nonsense. Totally inappropriate, indeed. And decidedly unpleasant to boot.
