It occurred to me that on the way to see this show that I've been in following the highly energetic theSTART for over 10 years now. The band consists of power-couple Aimee Echo (Human Waste Project) and multi-talented guitarist Jamie Miller (drummer of: Snot, ...Trail of Dead, Nighthorse) as well as bassist Lance Webber (Man will surrender) and incredibly skilled Chelsea Davis on drums (also of the side-project with Aimee & Jamie called Normandie, which I equally adore [perhaps even more!!!]).
While I typically avoid the 30 mile trek up to the Belly Up due to the cost of gas and hefty ticket prices, in this case it was totally worth it... primarily because it's been a couple of years since I've had my "fix" of theSTART, but also the sound quality at the Belly Up is consistently voted the best in San Diego, and from a photography standpoint, the lighting is amongst the best as well. Please enjoy!
