Catch up time:
First off, hopefully you made it down to 340 on Sunday for the Shearing Pinx homecoming show. It was a bit of a bummer that it got switched from all-ages to 19+, but the show was still rad. I can't remember the last time that many great local bands played in the same place on the same day. The usual suspects performed, so I'll save any sort of in depth recap. I do have to mention that V. Vecker's set was the highlight of the show for me. He played in the crowd with a pair of amps (that were set apart on either side of the stage), and Justin from Mutators joined him on drums. I liked his set at the Music Waste edition of Fake Jazz Wednesday, but, by comparison, that performance had nothing on this one.
Belated thanks go out to Anju (from i/i) for spearheading the whole event.
