 I arrived in time to catch local duo Sparkle Blood playing the hits of the White Stripes to an enthusiastic crowd.

 They plowed through a gritty set of blues rock including obscurities and hits like “Seven Nation Army,” for which he and drummer Bre Stewart welcomed Silvana Campus from MTBC (who were up next , playing the  Pixies) to play bass.

 She played bass on that and on“My Doorbell”, which also featured Jane Edmundson on keyboards.

MTBC, including Sil Campus, drummer Garwin Poff, guitarist Quint Viskup and frontman Rob Cooper played a tight set of ’90s alternative rock from the Pixies and ended with  a rocked up version of ’60s classic “ Here Comes Your Man.”

 I wasn’t able to stay for Cope and Ryland Moranz‘s  Blink-182 tribute.
