Our first show at the hallowed Dominion Tavern may have been our best yet. Perhaps not technically, as we were frighteningly under-rehearsed, but fun-wise, rad-crowd-wise, new-song-wise, it fucking rocked balls.
We opened the show, followed by the complete mind-bomb that is Gunsmoke. I'd never seen these cats before and they fucking ripped. The lead guitarist (whose name escapes me - I apologize) is a goddamned wizard and certainly proceeded to make a monkey out of me. The other lads in the band were phenomenal as well.
The Fucking Machines were obviously pure radicality. This show was their record release party, so if you weren't there, you should go grab a copy. Whether or not it was actually their last show, I didn't catch. There was some drunken stage mumbling about it, and then talk of them playing again at Xmas. Let's hope it's the latter.

Our next show will be Halloween Hardcore at Babylon featuring ourselves and bunch of old & new friends' bands. It's a killer time every year, so prolly you should go. I know you're suposed to take your little niece out trick-or-treating, but just put on the Scooby Doo movie, hand her the bowl of Bulk Barn loot bags you hand-assembled and head over to the show. Seriously, she'll be fine.
Here's a video of The Fucking Machines. It's a bit dark, but you'll get the idea. Old dudes moshing.
Thanks to Jessica for taking the pictures/shooting the videos.
