Not even the rain and loss of Daylight Savings kept the dedicated from Transit Bar on Thursday night for the return of Glass Towers after their tour of America. The night opened with The Alternative, who brought quite a large crowd of followers. It was their first foray into the music scene with a drummer, having previously performed as an acoustic duo. They presented some nice acoustic guitar and solid basslines, and their final song (introduced by the lead singer as their personal favourite) was a definite crowd pleaser.
