InFest STL Tournament Of Champions: Round One, FIGHT!
MATCH 8: Justin Torres Loop Project vs. Sinfinis
One-man jam band versus co-ed trip-hop.
JW: Justin Torres at least seems like he's being honest here. I don't know if I can say that about the other band.
CB: I'm going to have to go with Justin Torres, based solely on his cover of "Jellyfish," which is one of the few String Cheese Incident songs that I actually kinda maybe enjoy sometimes.
WINNER: Justin Torres Loop Project
JW: Humdrum is a band to get behind. They have some songwriting chops.
CB: Picture Day is solid and consistent, but not that distinctive. Humdrum takes big chances that often pay off. Also, their tune "I'll Find You" is one of my favorite songs from a local band in the past two years or so.
RW: Humdrum is the band I'm most personally connected to out of all the ones playing. Since the band already won and my vote doesn't matter, I'm going to vote for Picture Day.
