As the seasons change from Summer to Fall, the weather cools and becomes unpredictable. However, it was quite the opposite at The Entry on Tuesday night. Abisha Uhl headlined a perfect night with performances from some great local bands. Abisha, who is known as the lead singer for Sick of Sarah, is pausing to explore and stretch her solo wings. First Avenue’s 7th Street Entry was the perfect venue to connect with the crowd and try out some of the new material.
Kicking off the night, recent newcomer Therapy took the stage. With Zach Mcintosh (vocals/guitar) leading the band of three, they kicked things off with a bang. As with a lot of new emerging artists, their set included a wide variety songs that reflected various moods and tempos. These guys are well on their way to finding their full groove.
Next up, The Blonde Fonzies hit the stage. Fronted by Katelyn Regan, the band brought forth an attitude all their own. Drawing on influences from The Kills and Garbage, The Blonde Fonzies have a unique sound that crosses Alternative and Punk genres. Though the set was short, the band delivered … solid and loud.
And then it was time for Abisha Uhl to hit the stage … and hit it she did. With a little different approach than songs from Sick of Sarah, Abisha brought a certain sex appeal to her new songs. The set carried a solid power punch but held tight to that intimate connection with the crowd at The Entry. The performance was great and really foretelling of the great music to come from Abisha’s solo venture. Judging from the crowds response, there was definite approval and no disappointment … and how could there be … with Abisha’s new sound backed by a host of hand picked local artists, the performance was great. Wild and hot, Abisha kept it real, inviting, and personal which made the performance easy to love.
