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 started with the Belle and Sebastian song that I was lucky enough to be an extra in, if you haven't already you can read my summary of the experience at the link below.  It would have been nice to get a close up in the video, but I only made the background of a couple of scenes, a link to the video is also below.  I really like the song (or maybe it is just because I heard it 50 times during the weekend), it is a lot more "dancey" than some of their other songs and I look forward to the new album next year.

As this was kind of a dance oriented set and I had not played a funky set for while, I went a bit old school and brought the funk.  The last set came back to some really great indie pop.

Best song I heard since the last show - Belle and Sebastian - The Party Line - See the video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vS1Hf3CVGs
