Versus Me Show Review
Walking into The High Noon Saloon,  we see some familiar faces and when we approached the stage,  James from versus me greeted us with a smile. We’re always greeted with such a warm reception from the guys,  it’s always great to see them.

Taking the Stage:
Amidst the dark lighting, James Milbrandt and his VSME band mates took the stage after an eerie introduction, launching into “Not going back”. From there, VSME segued into their new track, “Left Here” — in which they recently released a music video to. “The Real life Monsters, and “An American Tale”,  would be showcased on the next two songs — Damn, this is one helluva set, and we’re only five songs in! James and the crew kept the stage animated by what it seemed like “Jedi” like moves, (Sorry for the Star Wars reference), gliding by each other like they knew exactly the moment. The boys from JanesVegas killed it!

Holly Hutchison Weinman, Former A&R of Capitol Records, now Owner/Founder & Creative Director of ANRGIRL and IL Sistema said,” Versus me brings amazing energy and dynamics to their set.  The music was sensational and they rocked the house.  They are ready for big things on their horizon.”

High Noon Saloon, in Madison, after two experiences there, still show that the lighting is way below par, besides that debacle, the bands brought it. HEAVY AS HELL…
