10-3-09: The Nerds at Toad's Place

I'd never been to a show at Toad's Place before, and had heard a lot of good things about The Nerds, so I was pleased to be able to see their show last night at the historic New Haven small venue.

The Nerds are a cover band, but, unlike most cover bands, they have a very substantial repertoire that runs from Metallica to Justin Timberlake to Bon Jovi. They also did a couple Springsteen songs, which makes sense, since they are also from New Jersey. Almost everything was pretty spot on, though the tempo was usually stepped up a bit for entertainment value. Quite a show. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
