Thanks to Manta Ray-Gun for playing Damaged Goods on Friday. These two are becoming one of my favourite local bands (which is why we had them back, of course), so if you couldn't make it down this past weekend and haven't checked them out yet, do yourself a favour and go see them next time they play.
In the meantime, you can check out their set on Thunderbird Radio Hell here.
Thanks also go out to Horsefly, who Manta Ray-Gun brough along with them this time out (not only do they rock, but they consistently bring awesome opening bands with them when they play). It's fitting that Ian's rocking a Dinosaur Jr. tee in that photo, because that influence is easy to hear in the band's music, right down to being epically loud. Keep your eye out for them.
