Space pop from the Syndicate - four men in black clothes backed up by laser lights and a dangerous enthusiasm for playing around onstage. ACS is composed of Joe Reineke (Also known as Joe Meice), singer-songwriter-guitar, Nabil Ayers, drummer, Jeff Rouse, bass guitar, and Jason Krevey, guitar. They play a decent heavy rock with lighter songs thrown in. I saw them at Bumbershoot 2000 and was most impressed by the audience. Seeing all the twelve year olds mosh and crowdsurf was great in a "Oh, that's so cute" way. Not quite my thing, but the kids there sure loved them, and they're certainly skilled.
