As many of you know, I had a hand in organizing this year's Elm City Noise Festival. It's finally upon us! We had the soft open this past weekend and the first night went down so smooth last night at Best Video. Please please please try to come out to one or more of the shows tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday. We have t-shirts! I'm certainly excited to get back to my usual business of booking/playing shows at NEB to an audience of ~3. But hey, maybe just maybe this thing will wedge a little bit more goodwill into our weird little freakscene that might sustain.

We love you! Get to the gig!
