Cash Bash IV

The Deal: Four bands (two local) celebrate Johnny Cash, and play some of his music, too.

The Good: The cats and kittens were out that night. From the first notes of Hick'ry Hawkins to the flying beer ... From the jitterbugging up front to the last growl of the Belmont Playboys, the fourth annual Cash Bash tore through the small Derita venue with a fury. Sure, there were some solid covers -- "Ring of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Jackson" among them -- but the originals were just as good. Out-of-towners Rocket 350 and The Bo-Stevens joined in the fray for what amounted to a honky-tonkin', rabble-rousin', grease-and-growl shindig.

The Bad: $1.50 PBR cans, four bands, high energy, a lively crowd, five hours of music ... what could be bad? I'm sorry I missed the pre-party on Friday night.

The Verdict: It's a shame this event is only held once a year, but at least each day we're one step closer to the next one.
