OC Music Awards Showcase: Night 1-Detroit Bar-January 8, 2013
|Jackie Connor / OC Weekly|
|Much awaited local OC band Field Trip at Detroit Bar Tuesday|
Critical Bias: I'm a local.
The Crowd: Hipster-land a la Costa Mesa including Buddy Holly glasses, overwhelming stench of cranberry/vodka, Kangol golfer hats and chicks who need to eat more.
Overheard: "Oh my God, this sound check is so long! Okay, you're good, now play your music!"
Random Notebook Dump: Despite any potential for serious drink-to-camera lens potential or my 5'3'' frame squahsed beneath a burly sasquatch, everyone who was buzzin' was surprisingly courteous to my equipment as well as my vertical challenges. When I asked people to politely move, they did so with no 'tudes.
