Full report soon, but we had contributions from local guitarist and 
promoter Johan Nystrom (he did a great couple of 
drumstick-in-the-strings covers of earlier stuff), solo dark electronics 
expert My Boyfriend The Pilot, who turned in an excellent crunchy and 
soulful "God Came Between Us" (however she feels about it, it was 
great), and I did a trio of covers, the best of which was a version of 
"Down in a Mirror" with chanted vocals over no-input backing.

We also had a couple long-distance contributions from Matt Love and this 
list's Naythen Wilson (an excellent "Janky" and "They Told Me About 
You").  Matt's Mediterranean funk version of "Pending Doom" was first 
up, and chased out all the patrons except for one hardy soul who stayed 
through the whole thing.  The other innocent bystanders were a friend of 
MBTP's, and the two avant-gardiste guys working the shop that night.

In my opinion, it was a successful night--just a few people, but the 
right few people.  My only regret was that my friend Unfinished 
Symphonies had a family responsibility, and couldn't do a performance 
he'd been psyched about.
