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 18, 2014

After an opening set of some great indie pop (including a cover of a Galaxie 500 song by Finnmark! that I didn't realize was a cover at the time), the next set highlighted bands that were at NXNE this summer.  I didn't go to any of the paid events of NXNE, but I saw a great trio of bands at The Gap of all places.  Not only was it free but they were giving out homemade gourmet Popsicles and of course seeing three great bands in an intimate setting was awesome.  I also included a few bands in the set that I didn't see but heard about from the great Indie Underground blog (links below).

Best song I heard since the last show - Go Violets - Teenager - See the video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCZ6gSOIbIw
