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!

I had a hard time picking my top song this week and either of the first two songs could have made the cut, but in the end I went Cold Mailman, one of the bands that I saw at the Oya festival in Norway this summer.  However, the other song by Craft Spells is also awesome and that album has a good chance of being one of my favourite albums of the year.  I also really liked the rest of the first set making it one of the best ones I've played in a while.

I planed the second set to be more on the rocking side of indie pop, but I'm never sure if it ever works out, and I ended with a funky set, that I'm pretty sure that worked.
