COURTNEY'S BIRTHDAY!!...AND THE RETURN OF NITA “Mega Murray” STRAUSS!!! What can I say about last night's show?. This was my 3rd one, my friend and I got there about 11pm. The Maidens shared the H.O.B. bill with 3 other tribute bands including "Alice Cooper", and "Guns 'N Roses". The crowd was very large for this one, was happy to see so many had stayed to see The Maidens. Before they went on, there were LOUD chants of "Maiden!!, Maiden!!...". To me, the house mix sounded fine. Being in a venue like H.O.B. you get to hear everything in a good blend...but here's the punch line. Although it was sounding great in the house P.A. system, and some interesting moshing in the main floor. When I spoke with the ladies afterwards, apparently it was crazy onstage, no one could hear a thing. Kirsten's vocals were barely heard by the band, Nita had to kneel down near her monitors half the time to hear what was going on, and Wanda(god bless her) took it upon herself to crank up...so we REALLY heard her *lol*. Linda didn't miss a beat; fantastic drumming. The only thing that happened to Courtney, was her guitar strap kept popping off early in the show . She rocked it though, they all did. Overall, it was a great show. Probably the best that I've heard them to date. Can't wait for The Brixton gig(May 25th in Redondo Beach, check the tour page). As I mentioned before, last night was Courtney's Birthday, so there was a lot celebrations onstage(Bud Light in da house!! *lol*), the crowd showed major love. Last but not least, Nita came back after being away for 2 shows...and rocked it, we missed you Nita!! . I wish I had a set list to share with you guys on what was played. Can anyone post the set list?, all I could tell was again it was different than what was played at Paladino's in the valley. There are pics, will post as soon as I get them. Had a fantastic time, the musicianship again blew me away . I love you ladies!!!.
