Concert Review: Verbena @ Little Brothers, Columbus, OH (8/13/99)

Verbena was supposed to be the next “next Nirvana.”

They weren’t.

I mean, they were loud, someone had bleached blond hair (I think), their songs were aggressive yet melodic, but they lacked that something that puts band over the top from being merely okay to undeniablly good. Verbena was merely okay.

And that’s all I have to say about that.
