The DDG recording is up on DIME.

Individual links are to YouTube videos.

I've been minimizing commentary (better to be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt) recently but have to say that the DDG set this time around, even with some technical difficulties surrounding Jules' guitar, was even more tight then the previous times we had seen them last year.  It's uncommon for me to enjoy a band's slower tracks more than their faster paced ones, but this was an exception...Kristin's...er, Dee Dee's vocal delivery was enough to bring the house down, especially on tracks like 'Hold Your Hand' and 'In My Head'...but most of all, the phenomenal encore track 'Coming Down'...I'm hoping they follow groups like The Joy Formidable in getting some national television exposure, even if I probably won't want to catch them in any venues much larger than the GAMH.

Opening bands after the break...

San Francisco CA

TZO/TH1 blend.

Sleep Forever
Neon Jesus
new song #1
Hearts Of Love
I Wanna Kill  (with Dee Dee guesting on vocals)
Summer Of Hate

Bite the hand that feeds, Croc!

Perfect setup for the Dum Dum Girls, including a guest appearance from Dee Dee on their "really, really, really old" song 'I Wanna Kill'  (if you consider 2009 old).  Really like Electric Death Song, though I was finding I was having a hard time telling some of their numbers apart when doing the track IDs...I do like their Jesus and Mary Chain cum Sonic Boom sonic theatrics, even if it seems to blur into one giant chainboom blob at times.

TZ0/TH1 blend.


I Wanna Be Degraded
On My Mind (Damone)
Worship Me

Colleen Green turned out to be a very pleasant surprise, very catchy tunes that stick in yr head, a garage Juliana Hatfield for the 21st century, perhaps.  We were thinking she would benefit from having a live drummer instead of her drum machine unit, but it's not our music to make demands like that...remember what I said above about removing all doubt?
