Trixter was the second band on the stage at M3, and I must admit I wasn’t very excited about seeing them play. I have seen them perform a few times in the nineties, and thought they were o.k. at best. I missed the beginning of their set, as I was in the VIP tent with Jetboy. I did make in for the second or third song of Trixter’s set.
I thought Trixter was better than I remembered them to be. Not perfect, but a fun band, and they certainly did their part to get the crowd revved up.
Last night, on my long trek home from M3 from Baltimore, I was listening to the Eddie Trunk show on The Boneyard on XM Radio. Eddie called Trixter a party band like Van Halen. I nearly wrecked my car. Did he hear the same show I did? Clearly Trixter, is nothing like Van Halen. The band did do a pretty fun set, but comparing the band to Van Halen is sacrilege.
