After fighting with this damned Dinosaur Jr. video for days, you get last night’s show from the Colony instead. Connoisseur came out from Oakland for the first time since the before times, and they played a long (for them) set. They write some catchy stuff. They have a new split EP with Chris Dodge’s Trappist- I picked up the vinyl at the show.
What a night- I was hanging outside, talking with my friend Dan from Conno. Over the course of about 10 minutes, we saw one guy come flying out of the club, lay on the sidewalk, and spit blood everywhere. That must have been a vicious elbow/fist to the nose. Then, a few minutes later, a huge mass of bodies comes rolling out of the club, punching each other. Damn, rough night.
