Live Review: Forrest Day, Dizzy Balloon, Dublin & the Hip Hop Medicine Band, and Axia

Forrest Day

The Downtown Brew
San Louis Obispo
Aug. 29, 2009

This was the last date of the “Raise a Glass Tour,” which consisted of Forrest Day and Dizzy Balloon, but this particular show also featured Dublin & the Hip Hop Medicine Band and local band Axia. All the other bands hail from the San Francisco Bay Area scene.

Dizzy Balloon

Dizzy Balloon started off the show with their poppy, clap-your-hands-music. It was a very positive, high energy show. Lead singer Petros was very entertaining and theatrical. Dublin & the Hip Hop Medicine Band followed, which was a darker, sublime elixir – merging a four-piece orchestra with well-delivered rhymes. The local band, Axia, soon started shredding and rocking the crowd out with wailing vocals and metal riffs. They definitely had a good, loyal, local crowd. Forrest Day closed down the place with their melodic complexities, rocking screams and circus hip-hop beats. The crowd went nuts when they took the stage. It was an all-ages show, and the underage crowd really added to the hysteria. Forrest mentioned after, “It was awesome, and great to see our first crowd surf.”


This was an amazing set to see as I have never witnessed such a diverse group of entertainers on the same bill. If you get a chance to check out any one of these bands, I wouldn’t pass it up.
