It was a grand ole time, featuring performances from Matthew Gray (of Matthew and the Arrogant Sea), Smile Smile, A.Dd+ and The Phuss. And we got some great images. Eventually, you'll see them all--if not in next week's issue, then in another slideshow we're saving up to pair with that issue's release. For now, though, check out this slideshow of the earliest outtakes from the event. Consider it yet one more attempt to whet your appetites for tomorrow's showcase and/or destruction.
Many thanks to all the nominees who showed. And also to Dylan Hollingsworth, Andrew Williams, Hal Samples, Alex Flores, Jennifer Robinson, Josh Florence and the staff at City Tavern for helping make the night possible.
