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!

After the last show on the NYCPopfest I had lots of great indie pop that I had to get through.  In particular The Projections were a great find when I was doing some research on former members of The Pipettes.  The start of the second set were a couple of songs that easily could have been my top song and then I ended with more of an electro pop set.

Best song I heard since the last show - Persian Rugs - Always All http://vimeo.com/27772149
