Of course I named the show after the great album by the Smittens and I pay homage to the band by using a clip of their song 11:11 for my theme. I hope the band doesn't mind, but when I have talked to various members of the band after shows they seem like nice people whom I think would be good with it.

I also use this name for my DJ night happening occasionally at the Jane Bond in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Note that the links to shows older than 6 months might not be working, if you really want those shows please send me an email and I can get them to you. (Note that prior to 2018 I called my podcast FireballXL5, so don't be confused if you look at an old setlist)

Special thanks to Jeff Woods for finding my a place to host my mp3s!


August 2022

The show started with a softer set, followed by one that was harder, and ended with one in the middle.


Best song I heard since the last show: Lande Hekt - "Lola", hear the song (no video) here: https://landehekt.bandcamp.com/track/lola

To prove that "Lola" by Lande Hekt is about her cat, here are the lyrics:
