Following our interview, I asked Al Johnson to quickly review each band like a ruthless peer judging from the sidelines. I limited his summations to twenty words or less, and Johnson painted a straight, caveman-like picture of the show on June 21, 2013.

Lovely Little Girls of Chicago, Illinois. - MABEL SUEN

Lovely Little Girls: Pleasantly surprised. Interesting vocal harmonies with a band that can hypnotize audiences. Humble and unique. In a pop-template this could work big.

Xaddax of Brooklyn, New York. - MABEL SUEN

Xaddax: Sonic domestic violence served well-done with garlic butter. Gritty NYC noise tempered by St. Louis' humidity.

Yowie of Saint Louis, Missouri. - MABEL SUEN

Yowie: Your Led Zepp. They enticed me outta the dressing room. When this band knows they're winning, they're smiling. I love that.

Hit the jump for a clip of Yowie at the Skin Graft Homecoming on June 21, 2013.
