Best show of the day:

-10:00 p.m. The Entrance Band/Panache Showcase @ Hotel Vegas

Guy Blakeslee of the entrance band is in a class of his own when it comes to psychedelic rock. It also helps to have Paz Lenchantin as bass (played in A Perfect Circle, Zwan) to accompany Guy through deep strings of drippy reverb and extremely good guitar playing. To see Guy play guitar live is a treat in its own accord, as he is extremely proficient while playing a right-handed guitar in his left hand (Jimmy Hendrix style).
