Oy! What a night

If I had any question about my back being whole again, it was answered last night as I hauled lights up and down those @#$% stairs at the Phantasy. No problem with my back. Michelle, the owner, seems to have gone off the deep end with restrictions on light shows. No fog, no strobes. WTF?

Playing last night were Panzer Division, Adam X and Cenotype. The music was great but I don't know about the entertainment value of watching three dudes with laptops mix loops. I could have taken anyone off the street and told them "stand behind this laptop and bob your head while I play a CD" and gotten the same effect. Adam X did sing. So I give him some props for that.

The crowd was sparse - which was a shame. And some of us embarrassed ourselves. I won't name names, but it starts with an "f" and ends with an "eima."
