Fresh off the success of the Sonic Spectrum David Bowie tribute show, local indie rockers Soft Reeds headlined their own local showcase to a packed house Saturday night at Crosstown Station. Also on the bill were rock outfit Mr. History and Minden, the much-anticipated new project from former Kelpie frontman Casey Burge.

Minden started the night off with a short set of brand new songs that

featured Burge's signature catchy songwriting and sliding vocal scales

that though once associated with Kelpie, sounded richer and more

structured with the help of his new band of veteran musicians. Mr.

History took to the stage next with a longer, more jammed-out set that

kept the crowd alive and swaying to their heavy beat.

Finally, Soft

Reeds treated the Crosstown crowd to a couple of new Soft Reeds numbers

and a surprise rundown of their David Bowie set from the tribute show. Drummer Josh Wiedenfeld, who was absent from the Sonic Spectrum Tribute Series kickoff, learned the Bowie numbers in a matter of days, and Soft Reeds played through the Bowie songs with an astonishing amount of ease and confidence, which leads us here at Wayward to believe (and hope) that Bowie may become a regular part of lead singer Ben Grimes' repertoire.
