Imaad Wasif, also from L.A., was completely unimpressive during his unplugged set, but his plugged-in music on his MySpace page sounds more promising. Afternoons, making it three out of four from La-La Land took so long to set up that I simply gave up. I was debating whether or not I should venture out Thursday evening at all. Without free drinks, what's there to look forward to?
