Marcy Playground: April 26, 2004
Modesto, CA - Fat Cat
Notes: My roommates Kim and Susan and I went to this show together to see the opening
band, Jetliner. Susan was old friends with the lead singer, and Kim worked on their website for
them. I don't really remember much about the show, or if we stayed to watch all of Marcy Playground's
set, though I do remember seeing them play their hit song, "Sex and Candy." Jetliner was fun. They
have a classic rock sound with elements of Elton John on the piano.
The whole band stayed at our house
around this time when they had a gig in Fresno. It was kind of fun having a bunch of rocker guys in
the house for a weekend, though making coffee for 6 people with a tiny, 4-cup coffee machine was a bit of
a challenge. We got everyone caffeinated eventually.
This was the only concert I went to in 2004. It was a strange,
drought-like year for me for some reason.
