After some safety warnings, the band began another round of songs, and the crowd was given leave to fire away. One couldn't help but be a little moved by the overarching exhilaration experienced by nearly everyone in the building. It was complete mayhem with all the pushing, shoving, screaming, dancing, explosions, lifting, dropping, and general messiness in the place. And that was seriously just the tip of the iceberg for the set.
When it was all over for Everymen, a raffle was held for all of their merchandise and a couple of tattoo gift certificates provided courtesy of Aces High and owner John Wylie.
People were beckoned to stay for the last act, S.S. Web, that graciously made its way from its home in Milwaukee. Those who stuck around were treated to a fantastic folk-punk trio of a gold toothed guitarist, a seated washboard/cymbal player and a puppeteer accordionist.
S.S. Web has a defined and interesting sound that's a bit less family-friendly than the former acts. Although songs of drinking and drugs are pretty much obligatory in the genre, the band took it an extra step by including a bit of profane puppetry.
The accordion player, who is reportedly the offspring of Jim Henson, did two short acts as a "cumsock" then as an anthropomorphic phallus. S.S. Web kept the hilarity going against a backdrop of further dancing and people being lifted in chairs and cardboard boxes until the lights came on and the bar stopped serving its likely fatigued patrons.
