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!

A show that very much stayed in the indie pop vein with lots of fine new music.  The entire second set came from a recent compilation from Oddbox Records, I remember they did this last year and once again they have delivered with a bunch of great songs.  The bonus is that you can download all of the song I played and many more for free from their website (see the link below).

Best song I heard since the last show -    Craft Spells - Talk About The Past    - Hear the song:
