If you plot the course of my life as simply a succession of Halloweens, this weekend would seem as if I’d suddenly split into several different people, all of whom are obsessed with live music. In addition to Evelyn Evelyn tonight, on Friday I had the good fortune to see fellow Calartian Newman Wolf amongst the openers for ANAMANAGUCHI, not to mention Starscream, with whom I am now strongly enamored. Founded four years ago in a bedroom, Damon and George (and friends) rocked our faces off at Troubadour this Friday, and with this free download of their new single, you too can become faceless. Because who needs faces. Faces are dumb. Rock is eternal. Just like space. Pow.
Oh, there was also a naked gamelan performance. It’s best not to ask.
