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!

July 23, 1999

We started off with Tom Waits because of his upcoming concert in Toronto
after a 12 year absence, which Michelle is particularly excited about
since she has tickets. This led into the 2 Hillside sets (which put our
Canadian content over 50%) which occured last weekend, it was a great
festival with lots of interesting workshops (including one on canoe trip
preparation), good food and bands.

This past weekend Michelle, Derek, Sari, and I went to Boston for the
Civil Holiday long weekend, so I'm going to play a set of music of bands
from the Boston area, if you have any suggestions send them along (no New
Kids on the Block requests please).
