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!

This show was all about the 2013 edition of the New York Popfest which I attended this year after missing it for a few years.  As always it was a great event with lots of great music from bands both that I hard heard of before and ones that were new.  Just a warning that I did lots of talking during this show.

Best song I heard since the last show - Alpaca Sports - Just For Fun - See the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkNHDfgpevs
