The Voyeurs 10/27/09 - The Echo, Los Angeles, CA. (mostly Creedence Clearwater Revival cover set)

Last week, The Voyeurs performed a cover set of songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival (with the exception of the final tune "I Put A Spell On You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins - which was done "in the spirit of Halloween") as part of a pre-Halloween show at The Echo. The night featured four different Los Angeles-based bands performing as different classic rock bands. As a causal (radio) listener of Creedence Clearwater Revival, I was curious to see how some of these songs would be interpreted, and was pleasantly surprised.
The Voyeurs played a set of song culled from some of Creedence Clearwater Revival's greatest hits, including "Bad Moon Rising," "Lookin' Out My Back Door," and "Have You Ever Seen The Rain." From the perspective of the crowd, it was the energetic high point of the night (Though, The Monolator's set of ABBA covers beforehand certainly was a contributing factor to the crowd's energy) Although, not a Creedence Clearwater Revival song, a jammed-out version of "I Put A Spell On You" put a satisfying cap on the band's time slot.
