Well, last night, as promised, we indeed celebrated the one-year anniversary of The Local Hang at The Libertine, with some help from top-notch local performers The O's, Leg Sweeper, Spector 45 and A.Dd+.
Our one regret? Not bringing ear plugs. You'd think by now we'd know that Leg Sweeper and Spector 45 like playing their punk rock at full-blast.
Oh, well. Hindsight.
We don't regret the party, though; it was a good time, for sure. Many, many thanks to all who came out--and, even, to those who didn't come to this one, but have come to these monthly events in the past. It's very much appreciated.
After the jump, as always, the list of songs I played over the PA (not counting the band's own set lists this time around, though). There, you'll also find a few more photos from Eric Garcia, who was kind enough to stop by and document the night.
