I spent the entire second night of Music Waste at the Cobalt as well. That wasn't my initial plan, but I got to Shudder Gallery just as Prophecy Sun was set to start and it was packed and I bailed on heading over to Honey to finish off the evening since Sex Negatives and Boogie Monster were on last at the Cobalt.
Speaking of the latter, they were definitely the highlights of a pretty good night all around. If you read this fairly regularly, you know that I'm not opposed to seeing the same bands over and over if I really like them, but one thing about seeing Sex Negatives is that it's always different, sometimes markedly so. Boogie Monster just get better every time I see them.
It was also my first time seeing Ahna (although I think I've seen Anju play solo once or twice), who were awesome.
