Thanks go out to the 700+ bat-shit-crazy folks that came to Saturday night's 100th Issue Celebranza. The night was filled with great bands, local and national, and it felt like one of those nights where some proverbial genie was let out of the bottle and inhibitions were withered away. I like to think with SO many bands with such disparate dynamics, crowds get crunk from the simple celebration of music. Nevertheless, Montonix owned the evening. If you have never had the pleasure of witnessing their live performance, do so with haste. I could try and describe their erratic dynamics, their center floor set-up, their maximum crowd involvement, the way the drum set is in constant motion, or the frenzy in which they rile participant up BUT mere vernacular could do it no justice. Somebody out there was shooting video and if you know who that special someone is, drop us a line. Anyways, thanks for joining us and thanks to: Rebelution, State Radio, Tha Fucking Transmissions, American Fangs, The Tontons, and Monotonix, Jagi, Shelby, Martin,the crew at Numbers and Pam Cantu for the grrreat photos. For those of you who missed it, our 200th Issue Anniversary is slated for 2015. Assuming human existence continues beyond the great cataclysm of 2012, it should be a great show full of reptilian overlords, shape-shifting Lone Stars, and the same restroom set-up at Numbers.

Well done Omar. Congrats. That was too much fun.

I'm so glad Pam got such great shots. April had a show that night and I left my camera at a friends house and was prolly too plastered to hold a camera steady anyhow. Always awesome to see a great fun event documented so beautifully. So hooray Pam! :)
