Hunchback just melted my brain. If you don't know who they are check it out at thehunchback.net. Horror-surf-noise. The Ergs! also played and were tight ass hell as always. Love hearing those guys play. Seem like they are always having a blast. Picked up Hunchback's new disc "ugly on the outside." Haven't gotten the chance to listen to the whole thing but it sounds awesome so far. Sonicly the representation reminds me a lot of "Baby Teeth." Sounds like they put some time into it but things are still mixed a bit strange (strange in a GOOD way). Sounds as though we aren't the only ones tired of every album having the same production sound. I think the coolest thing about these bands is the fact that the are so into each other but don't sound all that much alike. There are so few bands that can get up there and just rock it. Both of them can. I think that is what draws them to each other. I think they will be able to hear that in us too.
Speaking of... Handed out some demos and flyers to Hunchback and The Ergs. Couple of them said they had heard good things about us and Mike Erg said he was probably coming to the album release. Rock. Been waiting to be able to play for some of those peoples.
There were some interesting characters at the show. Favs included the two jerks who had to take the slam dancing a touch too far. Why is their always that guy? Everybody loves crashing into each other and then that guy comes barreling in ready to take out some knees. Anyway, these two would trash around until they had cleared the middle of the room of everyone but themselves. When this point was reached they would push and tackle each other until they were in an embrace and then slap each other on the ass. I wonder if they were each other's Valentines. Runners up for interesting people was the guy who didn't blink the whole time (let me tell you, thats creepy) and the dude with the really long dreads who tried to kind of hit on this little chick who walked away in disgust. Burn.
Cheeseman was on hand passing out comps with a bunch of worthwhile Bruns area bands. Everyone should check that out over at myspace.com/toiletmuthafuckinrock.
In honor of Valentine's Day I have gotten myself a crush. (I'm blushing).
