the soft pack. amoeba berkeley. 1/28/10
the soft pack played a free instore at amoeba in berkeley today. they kept their set short by showcasing new songs off their debut self titled album due out february 2nd. the band opened up with c'mon demonstrating what they do best - loud rock n' roll. After three songs, lead singer matt lamkin put down his guitar to play synthesizer. by the time the band played 'pull out' it became apparent that the stage was not big enough for this up and coming band from san deigo. they proved themselves worthy of their opening slot of coachella in april. the band finished strong closing with fan favorite parasites. all in all, a great set from a great band. do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of the new album next week.
