mountains





First off, thanks to the always wonderful MT-40 and the now-on-my-list-of-bands-to-see-as-much-as-possible, No L.A. Kill for playing Damaged Goods on Friday.

Second, thanks to Tristan and the guys from Winnie Cooper for putting on one of (if not the) local shows of the year on Saturday at the packed-by-midnight Funky Winkerbean's. I've sung the praises of Basketball, Gang Violence, and Boogie Monster before, and they were amazing as usual, but I should make special note of Babe Rainbow, who rounded out the bill.

A lot of you probably already know Cam from his other ventures (playing in Hot Loins - RIP - and working to make Music Waste happen every year), and if you read real music publications (Exclaim, NME, etc), you may have heard them praise him. I haven't piped up about it, since I usually just talk about live shows, and this was actually his first. It wasn't exactly the best dance party music (although, neither is Boogie Monster, I suppose), but it was pretty damn good. Check it out, if only to tell your friends you were into him before he blew up.
