Soldiers of Jah Army - Time Come Due
.
I have loved this band for quite some time; however, never seen them live until a couple weeks ago. This was long overdue.
.
The Jewish Mother in Virginia Beach is a small bar/restaurant with a stage. Because its so small, many shows sell out and very fast too. My friend who just moved to Portsmouth got the as soon as they went on sale, and apparently the show sold out shortly after. Small venues offer a much more personal edge to concerts. You are actually able to get to the stage and cheer for the band.
.
The Movement was the opening band for SOJA. Although I had never heard of this band before, I decided to buy their CD. Well worth it too, The Movement is a great reggae band.
.
Unfortunately due to the small venue and enthusiastic crowd, I was not really able to hear SOJA. Not in any sort of bad way either. Its just that they played only a very few songs that I knew, but the crowd knew them all. I couldn't really appreciate the introduction to new SOJA songs, but the show was fun anyway.
.
The biggest draw back to the concert was the price of the drinks. The Jewish Mother is a little expensive, but not outrageously so. That was until I asked for a cup of water. The pricks charged me $1 for a cup of water. Not a bottle of water, a cup of water. I mean I was DD, and after 8 beers I really wanted some water. Oh well.
.
The next day after the show I had planned on going to the beach, but the closest I got was to the boardwalk and then we found a bar. I never touched the sand. Amazing how that happens sometimes, isn't it?
